Lovely...

I know you can hear me... said...

I have to agree, those are just lovely. Serene and peaceful, but I think that the last one is somewhat sad...

Beruriah said...

Nice.

That top one is just beautiful!

thirtysomething said...

Hmm. Top one is very inviting. sink one - were you wearing red? Or is there red dishes/pans off to the side? Interesting.

niobe said...

thirtysomething: The red is actually the reflection of a soda vending machine, selling (I think) coke. The drain is the drain of the water fountain (does anyone except people from my home state use the word "bubbler?") that I talked about taking photos of a few posts back.

I know the first one is the one everyone is loving, but I am fascinated and quite taken by the second one.

Lori said...

You come up with such interesting juxtapositions.

Yankee T said...

In my home state, it's a "BUBBLAH"
Great photos.

LAS said...

I love the first one - I love the color. I've never heard of anyone calling it a bubbler!

Eva said...

Oh, it's a water fountain. I was going to comment about how clean your sink is!

meg said...

Gorgeous shots as always. I think you should make a coffee table book of all these cool closeups that you take. I'm sure I would not be the only one, who would want one.

Magpie said...

I was thinking the "sink" looked really clean, but then I looked at the grunge along the edge of the drain.

You do take good pictures.

Amelie said...

mmh. Love water. Never heard of bubbler, though. But I think I did figure out psds eventually.

Tash said...

The first one looks a bit troublesome to me, but that's just me. I grew up in a place where the second one would have had "chaw" all over it. No wonder I don't know what they look like close up. Both lovely.

Ruby said...

I like them both! Bubbler, huh?

Carole said...

Absolutely stunning.

My Reality said...

I heart your photos.

The Oneliner (Christina) said...

pretty.
were you dressed as a candy cane?

Christine said...

ok--psds and bubbler--are you from Pittsburgh?

love these photos. do you sell them?

niobe said...

Christine: My cousin lives in Pittsburgh, but I think that's the closest to it I've ever gotten. I've never sold any photos, but if you know anyone who wants to buy one, let me know.

Oneliner: The red and white stripes are the reflection of a soda vending machine, NOT of my outfit.

Pamela Jeanne said...

really nice...

Which Box said...

What is it about water that is so soothing?

you seem offended we might think you are a candy striper in your real life. No red and white outfits for you?

niobe said...

Which: I think it was the "dressed as a candy cane" rumor that I wanted to dispel.

that first picturelooks so much like "my spot" at the camp I used to work at... a tree that had fallen into the lake that I would retreat to a with a book or a journal or just my thoughts. I would sit and listen to the water gently lap the shore, and all would be restored.
