Back to Venice! Where else – the challenge is “water”! Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, in fact – where she’s currently asking us to examine the five Chinese elements. Last week it was “Metal“, this week, “Water”.
Cee’s research indicates the water element encompasses everything from acid to rain and fluid in general; to solids like frost, ice and snow, even salt; ethers like mist, mirror, reflection and steam; the moon and sea, of course; and storms – even pressure, sound, sugar and time.
I captured some steam this morning while Kumari was cooking the chicken curry, but I’m keeping that up my sleeve for a mega-foody post when Frizz gets to the letter “K” – a beautiful letter in Sinhala script, by the way.
I hope you’ll enjoy a short exploration of water in the Venetian sense – culminating on the day winter arrived – enveloping the city in a gossamer cloak of white which almost obliterated the view of St. Marks Basin – arguably most recognised stretch of water in the world.
There are lots of wonderful watery responses to the challenge – including Cee’s own terrific gallery, so pop straight over and have a look!
