Written Statement

The calmness of the water draws people from far and wide. It makes people feel relaxed and happy. The water seems so peaceful and gentle.

The jetty is a place that lots of people like to walk on and fish from. They seem to enjoy the company of the water like I do when I am there. It is like a memory you like to keep hold of, so I made it look misty and a bit faded around the edges while cropping close to the jetty. The sailboats were wonderful to watch as the crowd grew from the shore looking on.

They set sail making a trail in the water. It was a warm sunny day and the colours of the sun shone on the sailboats so I enhanced this look. The calmness of the water continues to draw people individually or in groups as it is a place of happiness.

The kites across the sandbank drew me to the sand as I watched them scatter across the sky. The colours of the kites looked good with the blue clear water and white sand.
