Watery Wednesday: the ripple effect

Kay Davies photo, March 19, 2011

Just as these ducks in Hoorn, a beautiful old town in The Netherlands, send out ripples when they swim, so do memes expand due to the ripple effect. I follow many blogs and have often enjoyed Watery Wednesday, but I live in a desert part of the Canadian prairie, so I hadn't thought of joining this meme. However, my husband Dick and I have recently returned from a trip to The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland, bringing home dozens if not hundreds of "watery" photos. When I saw our friend Debbie's beautiful photo for this week, I knew I wanted to try.  This is my first contribution to Watery Wednesday, hosted by T. Bruce Photography, but I hope it isn't my last.

Great picture for your first post and what a great way to introduce yourself!
Can't wait to see more of your "Watery" pictures from around Europe!
Love you,
Debbie

This is a wonderful first contribution, Kay. I love the vantage you had for the shot!
Don't think that because you live in the desert, you can't participate in a water meme, you'll just have to be a little more inventive than some!

Beautiful photo! I like the coulor of the water :)

I never thought of a meme as a ripple effect, but it's true isn't it? It does connect a lot of people radiating from the meme.

Ducks are good for ripples. Especially Dutch ducks!!

We spend a good portion of our summer weekends out at the lake, and there are oodles of ducks. Through the winter I freeze old bread and the heels no one wants to eat, and then come summer I have plenty to bring out to the lake for the ducks. I love watching the little fuzzy ducklings zero in for their fair share.

I'm sure you got lots of watery photos in the Netherlands but I bet there are more opportunities than you realize in your prairie home.

Hi Kaye - I love ducks and I love ripples - delightful!

I'm glad you decided to join us this week! I hope you don't let the desert keep you from finding water shots. It's just a little more of a creative quest on your part (wink.)

Ebie said...

Wow, Kay, I am very much impressed of this shot! Not just ripples but circular too! The pink flowers added more color to the "waterscape"!

Looking forward to more watery shots for this meme!

This is a very beautiful image, nicely short from above! Having been to the Netherlands I really trust you have a lot of water related pics now... :)
Very nice to see Lindy coming from under the table, golden retrievers are such nice dogs!
God bless you!

This is a gorgeous photo. I love the way you took it through the maple blossoms (is that what they are?)

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Leslie — I don't know what the blossoms are. To tell the truth, we saw so many things in such a short time, I am happy just to be able to remember taking the picture, but the details escape me.
Luv, K

Lovely to see you at Watery Wednesday, Kay, and a wonderful capture of ripples and reflections! I very much enjoyed your comment about the ripple effect of memes, too. So true...it's always a good idea to challenge oneself with new projects, and of course meet more interesting bloggers...:)

Very nice to see your watery post! It's an easy meme for me of course, but it is amazing how creative some water loving photographers are.

It's fun following your travels and I like seeing the "small stuff" that you enjoy as well as the bigger tourist attractions. Makes it feel more like being there.

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Lynette — more interesting bloggers? But how can any bloggers be more interesting than the ones I already know? LOL
