You can go to the shore and watch waves continuously changing the view. Come back in a hundred years and the rocks will look about the same. Over time water erodes rocks into beautiful patterns. At first glance the colors are drab, but with a little magic they can be brilliant. Another characteristic of water is that it reflects, but slight ripples cause interesting distortions.
Things can be anything you want them to be. The captions I give photos are often how they first strike me. Some of the rocks resemble a view from an aircraft or a satellite even though they were taken on the ground. The reflections make me imagine a place where matter and antimatter meet.
The first 4 photographs were made at the reflecting pond for the Balboa Park Botanical Building in San Diego. The park houses many museums and the weather in San Diego is always perfect. The remainder are from Ocean Beach in San Diego.
