Thirst....a need...a want...

This post is inspired by someone who makes me think...makes me go deeper into myself...I needed that for so long... and finaly...I can say....for this year..I've met this person.

Me and some buddies went on a trip to the inlands of Suriname. On our way to some waterfalls I just couldn't keep my fingers from the camera. Being thirsty and all the driver just crabbed my attention...the way the water looked...the way it dissappeared in his goro-goro (throath) ...the "Gloek gloek gloek" sound, the color of the bottle...the blurry background...(yes...my eyes "aprture" was wide open). Of course I needed to capture this so I did...because of all of the above reasons. But.....

The thoughts I had about this picture when I review it after the upload were about the wars of the past, the present and the future. What will it be next? No oil...no ...take a wild guess......

Hope you like it...Starseed 2012

It's a really good shot Fausto as I am sure you realise ;o) Silouette looks great, the backlighting just doing enough to describe the form. Light on the water and bottle perfect. Framing and composition nice and tight. Outstanding ;o)
Fausto Fraser: This is one of my favorites! All of the above was going through my head when taking this shot and viola! THanks for the visit and comment!

Fausto, this is GOOD, just water, but you captured this in such a magnificent way, thanks for the text with it.
Fausto Fraser: Thanks Astrid! Every picture tells a story. Sometimes the picture tells it's own story without words but yeah...it's good to describe it from time to time as I try to do with every post.
Everything has been said, you sure show us that you have the eye and the technical skills, very well done!!!
Fausto Fraser: Thanks Master P!

Fausto Fraser: Thank you Ginnie! That thought did cross my mind!
