I interpret the assignment as using orientation of our image to project a story about water’s meaning in our lives. Water seems to be all-encompassing in my life and I feel both of these orientations tell that story. The first, a beach on Florida’s west coast during a holiday with family, shares the vastness of the water and parallels the connection with family and with the universe. The second, a macro shot in the forests of North Carolina, also shows a sort of vastness. A world within a world. And potentialities of the future . . .
