I saw the same 'bath floating' layout! Strange how the angle of view makes such a difference...

meowmeowmans said...

Wow, how ethereal and almost haunting!

Helen said...

Given the option, I'd rather be floating on my back! Great job, Kathe.

And its all in the eye of the beholder...

I think this picture is very suggestive for easy typing!

Stephen Hayes said...

A hauntingly evocative photo, beautiful and disturbing at the same time.

Point of view means so much!

Oh, but it looks even different with your head cocked! (LOL?)

Yesss. Is she floating on her back or treading water.

Lucy Westenra said...

Yes, I saw floating horizontal, too.

I love the new dimension you've created in the photos and the words. Thanks, Kathe, it's fabulous!
