those are two vital elements that usually don’t go together because one negates the other but here they merge into one and become visually inseparable.
just like fireworks, the beauty of water doesn’t need any introduction: i’m fascinated by both and feel compelled to photograph them at every opportunity so, for this year’s Bastille-Day nighttime hoopla instead of just pointing the camera towards the sky i made a point of including water reflections in each shot.
i fully realize that the water aspect of these images is next to impossible to perceive but there’s a very marked complimentary ‘feel’ to them when comparing this selection to sky-only images from previous years. i hope you’ll enjoy.
