What I saw when I shot this? Well, rather what I thought when the picture was taken.
Where the sky ended and the water in the pond begins? Was the fish in the pond or in the sky? Is what you see really what it is? Was this fish the only one in its watery world? Or in a place in the sky?
Was this fish pondering the same question? Or perhaps it was just struggling to survive.
What you see of the lone fish is only half the picture. The other half is all the giant koi rushing towards the vibrations of human feet from where they think they will get their next feed.
Pushed to a corner for their survival. Were they the real survivors?
Where life starts and ends is blurred. What’s left is the survival. And who survives.
Look who’s waiting by the sidelines. Can’t see? Look again. Making a move now…
What a splash! What a manoeuvre…
Like life. There are those who wait patiently by the sidelines. Then in one fell [swoosh] they make a move leaving others in their wakes, their watery trail of dust.
So who survives? Don’t discount the beast (we won’t go into “define beauty” at this point) alongside with the beauty … at the end.
Where does the water in the pond end and the sky begin? Is it a watery world or a place in the sky?
You tell me.
PS: Pictures taken with iPhone 3GS at Changi General Hospital Koi pond where my niece was hospitalised for colitis this past Lunar New Year. We had wheeled her from her ward for some fresh air.
Such “inspired” thoughts from her aunt. 😛
