Hot on the heels of the small clutch of reeds in my previous post – Chance Finding – I spotted this line of reed stems. Some standing proud, others bowed and bent – each one reflected – they suggested a Hieroglyph.
Images like this, divorced from any other feature within the water, appear to float in space: which is why they appeal to me so much. They are also transient – in a few days this creation of shapes will be amended as the reeds grow. The composition might improve, but more likely it will become muddled and the simplicity of the current form will be lost.
