What the Water Gave Me

The Water's Embrace

The Water’s Embrace was inspired by the words of William Wordsworth. He believed that:

“A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.”

This photograph captures two lovers in water’s warm summer embrace. As water is thought to symbolically represent the house of emotions, this piece visually represents two people resting contentedly in their feelings. Just as love can wash over us like a tidal wave, contented feelings can embrace us like a slow and steady steam.
