The Gallery...Water


Water is this week's theme for The Gallery.  Water is such an enticing medium for children.  The magical reflections as light plays upon its surface.  The rippling effect that just calls out for the throwing of pebbles.  Its cooling buoyancy which invites you to jump in.

This picture was taken in France in 2004.  We stumbled across a quiet beach, completely unprepared for a day of swimming.  Undeterred the girls stripped down to vest and pants and fashioned makeshift swimwear for a dip in the shallow, warm sea water. It was an unexpected day of fun and I love this photo of my two little mermaids.
