windswept by CatchMe-22 windswept by CatchMe-22
smell that salt in the air
feel that sand in your hair
as the grains rush between your toes
and you sink ever so slightly...

the ocean becomes you







Mission Bay, Auckland
New Zealand

I love this picture, the color is awesome and fits perfectly into the mood I believe you tried to depict in here. I love how the fence (I don't to call it) seems to follow the lamp post. That poem fits the picture really well. Congratulations ^^

excellent composition. very dramatic.
i'm not sure about the black frame. i think it might darken the whole a bit. but i'm still loving it.

Your pictures make me so homesick! (I miss NZ :( ) Although I just love seeing shots of NZ again, even as simplistic as this one. Your photographs are always so beautiful, and have wonderful composition!:+fav:

in all of life you either stand and fight...

or

you lean along with the wind and try to go with the flow.

:iconcatchme-22:
CatchMe-22 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2007
well put... but sometimes I feel like i do both at the same time... I flow with the wind then cause havoc wherever I end up =P

It is only the havoc though that creates life within us and those we come into contact with...

Let the wind blow freely as she was intended...

let the wind blow freely as she was intended...

leaving nothing behind but a silent ripple...
