Active Assignment Weekly: Apr 26 - May 3rd: Water of Life


For this assignment, I’d like to see your feelings generated by the phrase “Water of Life”

It can be a simple relationship between drinking and water or the necessity of water for all life, including crops. It could also be the drastic results of either too little or too much water.


Your interpretation must have that element of water’s influence on life around us.



Must be a real photo... although manipulations and combinations of images could be interesting!



In my country, Scotland, especially in the Highlands (North) and Islands, “Water of Life” has another meaning. Your dare is to show this other meaning in your submission.


WIT: A simple last minute and graphically literal submission. I took some scrabble letters and waxed them up so the water would bead nicely. Then took a piece of glass and set it on piece of black paper and poured some water on it. After placing the letters on the water, I misted them with a bit more water to get the droplets. In post processing I cropped and added a texture layer. Lighting is from a shoplight containing a 100-w daylight blub.
