Thirst No More


Mill Race
Hopewell Furnace, Berks Co., PA

So easily taken for granted
by those who simply turn a faucet to quench their thirst.

Creaking and Groaning
Hopewell Furnace, Berks Co., PA

So precious and valued by those
who walk miles in parched lands to collect it.

Hopewell Dam
Hopewell Furnace, Berks Co., PA

So longed for by those in years of drought.

French Creek
Berks Co., PA

Yet cursed by those in floods.

French Creek State Park, PA

Both a blessing and a curse.

Bridge Over Troubled Water
Berks Co., PA


St Peter's Quarry

This is a really beautiful series, Rebecca.

Awesome sluice and mill! They are so fun to photograph! You did a wonderful job getting smooth water in the image!

Alicia said...

Great pictures and a great reminder to not take things for granted. There was a lot of talk this morning about saving water and the fact that the small town I live has one of the highest percentages in un-metered water use in Kern Co., so I'm thinking metered water is in our future. Both a blessing and a curse as well!

when I was growing up, both sets of grandparents didn't have piped water. We swam in the river, and then carry a small bucket of water back to the house. Then my maternal grandpa had a pump. What bliss.

Sarah Siwicki said...

Wow, you have quite the repertoire of water pictures to choose from! Love the images of the mill, and the contemplation photo.

Terrific set of pics, Rebecca. Each one shows a unique aspect of water, and it's all beautiful. Water is a precious resource.

Great shots Rebecca. Love that last one. We have had more than our share in Ky. Wish we could potion it out to other areas.
