Resistance is Futile: a photo essay

Father and daughter feet











Mother and son feet





Ballerina feet




A family of feet




Running feet







Standing still feet




Feet getting wet anyway







Playing, observing, accompanying feet




Feet that splash




Exploring feet



 
Deliberate feet




Feet just passing through





Happy feet

The most joyous feet in the world




I took these photos at a small water feature at The High Line park in Manhattan while I was sitting on a bench nearby having breakfast. Almost no one of any age could resist walking in the water.  Some just walked through without stopping, while others stopped to remove shoes to walk, hop, and splash. It was simply irresistible!

For the desert people of the Hebrew Bible, salvation was often likened to springs of water flowing out of the temple or out of Jerusalem, or mists of water rising up from the desert sands. Water is lifegiving. Our feet seem to know this instinctively.

Marvellous, Penny. :-) That put the most huge smile on my face, thanks.
So glad you enjoyed it, Perpetua. It was really a joy to watch everyone playing in this inch and a half of water!
