Ebb and Flow

What attracted me to this scene was the contrast between the flowing movement of the grass-like ‘leaves’ of the chalkstream water crowfoot at the bottom and the static algae at the top. The flowers of the crowfoot have breached the algae in order to sit almost encapsulated by the latter. I’ve somehow linked the symbolism of the image to my work situation but haven’t quite worked out why – or maybe I have.

    • Many thanks Sheila. I’m not sure whether – subconsciously – I thought about the symbolism first or whether it came later. Yes – it’s wonderful that the flowers have emerged despite seemingly being choked.

    • Thank you Terry. The chalkstream water crowfoot is a fascinating river plant. It reminds me of tresses of hair! I try to hope for the best with work although sometimes it’s difficult!
