Everything seems alive after rainfall, leaves seem greener and the colours of flowers are more effervescent, even animals look more lively. It is because of these reasons and many other that I decided to capture its majesty and subtle beauty in our environment, through photography.
I was at home in the kitchen, it was a dreary wet day, then all of a sudden the sun came out and everything lit up with ethereal light. The garden looked bejeweled with diamonds, sparkling off everything. I could not resist the temptation to get the camera out and join in this splendour. I was not disappointed, as is evidenced by the photographs. If you think about the rainbow hidden within each droplet it is like witnessing drops of life awakening the sleeping. I was like a child in a sweet shop, wondering where to look and where to begin. I was transported to another existence, the honour was all mine.

On this note I thought it would be a good idea to introduce a book I have read in the past called 'Messages from Water', by Masaru Emoto. You will never look at water the same way again after reading this. Dr Emoto realized that frozen water crystals formed in water, reacted in different ways when it was exposed to positive and negative environments. For example positive thoughts, and loving words, formed beautiful, symmetrical crystals. The negative thoughts, polluted water produced incomplete, asymmetrical crystal patterns. This was a breakthrough in realising how behaviour and the environment can have a good or bad effect on our health and the planet.
With this in mind, I remembered that I painted a picture called 'The colours of Life', to portray the magnificent colour spectrum within water. Here it is.
