Weekly Photo Challenge – Dreamy

“That which is dreamed can never be lost, can never be undreamed.”

Sometimes the Weekly Photo Challenge moves us to study our archives, and other times it pushes us to go out and get creative. This week, along with a good friend, I was shooting near my home on Kiawah. With the challenge in mind, and admittedly because the day’s lighting was still quite strong, I decided to do some abstracts of our beautiful natural scenes. The first shot, above, captures three small ducks making waves across one of our many lagoons. Dreamy? Well, I suppose that’s in the eye of the beholder, but they seemed quite dreamy to me 😊

Above, the same lagoon, this time reflecting the beautiful trees that grow so easily here in our warm, humid climate.

“Nothing happens unless first a dream.”

Carl Sandburg

Here the trees were reflected in an area of the lagoon that was a bit shadier than the previous shot. The minor ripples created an interesting pattern of tree trunks played out on the surface of the green-tinted waters.

“Our dreams are luminous, a cast fire upon the world.”

Charles Wright

Finally, there are times when art is simply the capture of color, or movement, or depth – with a hint of subject matter. For me, the scene above offers just enough of the tiny white flowers reaching up to the trees beyond to let us feel the warmth of the sun that lifts them, and the coolness of the beckoning shade.

So what about you – do you dream in color or are you a black and white dreamer? Are your dreams abstract or concrete? Isn’t it interesting to think about what our dreams really mean?
