I wanted to show you the water lily, but I ended up studying the photo and seeing all kinds of crazy things.
I’m in the boat (you see the edge of the aluminium skiff at the bottom of the photo), and over the water. The lily is over, on, under, and above the water. But what is that big hill doing, hanging upside down from the top of the photo?
Once I started looking at the way the lily was growing, I was quite fascinated by the roots on the lake floor, the stems reaching for the surface of the water (some unsuccessfully, so far), and the leaves floating on the surface, some of them half sunk, others lifting up, yet others lying flat on the bottom of the lake.
And then there are the two flowers that are really only one plus a reflection.
The longer I looked the more I could see.
And to think that at first glance I thought it was just a boring weed in bloom.
