I just discovered this watercolor effect on my phone camera. Serendipity. I like the result — an unusual image of a place of which I’ve taken so many photographs.
This is what it usually looks like….
Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual
These days I would rather travel by plane than be on a ship, especially if I have to travel in the evening. I don’t care if Bradley Cooper is on the same ship, I would never travel by boat at night.
Don’t get me wrong. I love the sea, the ocean. See, I made this watercolor because I really like this view of a boat sailing on the sea. When I made this, I was imagining myself being on that boat watching the horizon. But now several months have passed, and I look at this again, I’m thinking that can’t be me. I’d never get on a boat alone.
I think I am always thinking ahead and imagining new horizons, but the problem is actually doing something to get there.
So I guess that’s me sitting on the boat, looking out at the horizon, wondering what’s on the other side. Perhaps most islanders think like this.
This .year though I am actually doing something to get to that new horizon. I just hope that boat is strong enough and I’m strong enough to paddle. Lol.
Have a lovely weekend!
This is a picture of my mind in chaos. Sort of. I made this watercolor sometime in May 2014. I was going through a difficult time — delayed culture shock and my relationships with my (now) two best friends were not as clearly defined then as they are now.
A couple of months ago while we were packing our stuff to move to this new apartment we live in now, I saw the sketch pad where I made this watercolor. Serendipity. I can use this one today.
Have a lovely weekend. May you find peace, beauty and design in our chaotic world today.
Note: I had to re-do this post because a photo of my son and nephews were inadvertently attached to the file and I couldn’t edit it. Sigh
