Resistance is Futile: a photo essay
|Father and daughter feet|
|Mother and son feet|
|A family of feet|
|Standing still feet|
|Feet getting wet anyway|
|Playing, observing, accompanying feet|
|Feet that splash|
|Feet just passing through|
|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.
