The power of water and the damage it can cause, during a flood, is a scary thing ... At the same time there is a instinctual pull for many to be near water which is a requirement of life ... I guess one learns to live with the floods ... Your choice to share lines on the ruler makes for an interesting theme day photo.

Kate said...

These are important lines for the community. I've been on self-imposed sabbatical, but have returned for theme day. Come visit!

Harry Makertia said...

This is the first line that I visit related to water. Interesting story behind your picture. Great interpretation.

Hilda said...

Now these are very important lines! Great interpretation of the theme.

On a side note, I love those vines!

Isadora said...

Those seldom seen, hidden treasures. :)


Original way to illustrate the theme day. This line will become important to look at in the future.

Petrea Burchard said...

Perfect use of the theme, gorgeous photo too!

USelaine said...

Not only do you show lines of measurement, but you extend lines of communication as well!

Gerald (SK14) said...

an unusual take on the theme - well done.

Jilly said...

Oh lovely choice, Rose. Love the lines and the measurement, making more lines, too.

Unknown said...

Great photo and useful info Rose!

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" didn't register for the theme day - but he's having a great time following those who did!

Raquel Sabino Pereira said...

This is exactly the kind of photo I LOVE!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Tanya Breese said...

Lovely photo for theme day! I bet this is the only water ruler I'll come across! Happy Theme Day :)

Jane Hards Photography said...

Along with uselaine I think you have the most important lines for your part of the world today. Excellent interpretaion of the theme.

Rosie said...

I m very lucky to not have ever experienced a flood but I guess you are right. People learn to deal/live with their danger around them.

Thank you for your visit. Only yesterday I was looking at my favourite blogs in CDP and noticed that you are still away...please come back. I loved your blog...

Harry Makertia
Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed it.

I love the vines too... And my fascination with ivy come close to my love of wondows and churches.

Indeed. This is not an obvious place, is it?

Thanks for dropping by.

I knew you would like it too!

It was the only thing I could think of that was slightly remoted with the photograph!

Hyde PD
Thank you, and congrats on the nomination thing ;)

I know what you mean... there are so many of them!

I m sure you had the link already. You sure had your share (and mine) of floods up there.

Louis la Vache
I love blog hopping so I know exactly what you mean. :)

Sailor Girl
Que bom que voce gostou ;)!

You were right. I visited so many blogs today but didn't find any water ruler either!

You are always kind to me. Thank you. :)
