Liquid reflections

Liquid reflections

It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone.

~ Erica Jong

Today’s Capture Your 365 prompt is Liquid.  You can find plenty of liquid here in the Bogs, especially since it’s been raining for a good part of the day.

The pond turns solid objects into liquid with a little help from light.



From the first place of liquid darkness, within the second place of air and light, I set down the following record with its mixture of fact and truths and memories of truths and its direction toward the Third Place, where the starting point is myth.

~ Janet Frame



Imagination equals nostalgia for the past, the absent; it is the liquid solution in which art develops the snapshot of reality.

~ Cyril Connolly

Home in the water

Home in the water

That’s it from the Bogs on this rainy Monday.  It’s not a particularly good day for a walk.  The ground itself feels almost like liquid, it’s so saturated.  It’s a good thing I bought those Muck Boots last year.  They’re perfect for days like today.  The weather folks are calling for snow tomorrow, but it’s not likely to amount to much.

Have a delightful day, evening, night… whenever or wherever you are on the spectrum of time.  🙂

Wear your boots.  There are puddles everywhere.

Propel, propel, propel your craft softly down liquid solution.  Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, existence is simply illusion.

~ Fred Rogers

There is liquid in the clouds, ready to fall to earth.

    “Home in water” is my favorite. (It really isn’t under water is it? It’s an illusion, right?) We have frozen water coming down from the sky today and it’s white. At least twelve inches. Hard to walk here today, too…

  2. Robin, are those photos of reflections and ripples or did you process them in some way? …they are beautiful, whichever they are.
    What a lot of variations in “weather” you do have there in your bogs….

    It’s been a very liquid day. Perfect title. I love reflections inverted like this.

  4. It is truly a squishy day when the world is so liquid. My favorite today is “Mirrored”.

    ah liquid, water …(that quintessentially essence of life… ) … Hi , Robin, I watched Dr Brian Cox (Wonders of Life, TV series) talking of how they know what water is, but where it came from, it’s beginning it’s makeup…is totally an unknown factor.. but the one thing we do know, is we need it to live. What astounds me is how beautiful it is…lakes, waterfalls… even the merest form of a raindrop rolling down your window pane… ’tis a miracle…(Mind you, we could do without the flooding and the snow at the mo… but… that’s Mother Nature for you…totally one track minded… her mind, her way of doing things. Just like any Mother I suppose… Now, I just fancy a nice cool glass of water… with a large ice cube… (glutton for punishment, me!! 😉 xPenx

    “Home in the Water” is interesting, yet eerie.

  11. Beautiful use of a liquid theme. We are getting the rain with snow to come, too. Such is the way of March.

      Thank you so much, Scott. 🙂 True. March is a changeable month. Kind of like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates. You never know what you might get.

  12. I love reflections, great captures!
