On The Waterfront - Band of Faith

Band of Faith

When you embark on a journey of a million miles, what makes you let go of fears of the uncharted territories and stormy seas?

Would you board a flight not equipped with safety devices or sail on a ship that did not carry life buoys?

Isn't it the same with any relationship? Is it a coincidence that the word defining our deepest interactions with fellow humans has a 'ship' at the end? Would you board a ship to sail a journey of a million miles if you knew you'd end up at the bottom of the tempest tossed seas at the earliest sign of storm? For there are as many days of soaking storms and howling winds as there are days of endless sunshine glittering on the endless sapphire waters...

I feel safe and content, knowing that I will be going through life's journey with a man who means it when he says, ' in sickness and in health', 'for better or for worse', 'for richer, for poorer' and is strong enough to walk with me and hold my hand, through the sunshine and the rain; not behind me, not in fornt of me, but by my side, as my equal. 

So as I sat on the waterfront, on honeymoon in CentreParcs, contemplating the journey ahead; I took this shot knowing full well it was not just a lifebuoy. Not for me anyway. It is a band of faith.

hm shmod.. originality; 6/10.. This is a common setting. aesthetics: 5/10, Different perspective would be great. Subject: 10/10.. my photography is too look at the photograph and see what it tells by itself. If I hadn\'t read your explanation, I wouldn\'t be able to see it. so due to my current understanding of photography, it is a plain shot, but I see that it has great sentiment behind. I don\'t know if words are necessary to me, it isn\'t in my photographs. But your style is different, I like it.
sinem,

i really like the empty space to the right of the life buoy. i think it adds to the importance of the buoy. the orange buoy automatically draws the viewers attention, especially with the empty brown space.

you are really blessed to have found a partner for whom you consider to be your equal.

enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Very simple and elegantly done, I really like, especially that you kept processing to a minimum.
Ony itsy bitsy problem, you weren't standing directly infront of it so the top line isn't parallel with the frame line, bugs a little, but hradly noticeable.
GREAT GREAT SHOT!!

Beautiful post today! So tender are the words, again, I am so excited for you and Suby and your new life together.

Excellent eye on the photo, it's a winner of a shot, too! The simplicity of the lines, shapes, and colors work together wonderfully.

beautiful picture I'd happily send out as a postcard, love the colours and the framing. Great use of the symbolism expressed in the words, they enrich what is a lovely photo and make it into something really special.

Lovely compostition, and as always, your words are deep and meaningful. I can say the same of my relationship. I will be married 22 years this September, and those words of yours pretty much sum it up for me as well.

Brilliant shot, there is nothing more exciting in a shot than space and you have used it absolutely brilliantly here
