I took these photos whilst pointing my lens out the window of a narrowboat on an English canal, first one way and then the other. (You can see the change in direction of the wake.) We’d travelled a short distance between shots, but even so the difference in colour from one direction to the other is quite striking. Intense blue to greens and golds, flecks of red, a smattering of white, the colours of an opal, the metallic hues of a scarab beetle in Italy, the mineral-laden waters of Lake Louise in the Rocky Mountains of Canada, kelp playing in the sunlit waves off the coast of British Columbia, the blue eyes of a kitten, green gold of a cat.
Beneath the Sturm und Drang of a hyper-connected world, there are quiet places. And one ought to endeavour to find them. See: A David Hume Quote worth contemplating. A balanced life.
