People along seawalls, shorelines, strands, etc.
At Water shows people along shorelines, riverbanks, pools, etc. They are splashing about or staying dry. They're taking it all in or simply performing life with little regard for the backdrop. I like water and its connotations. I like its states and shapes, how it separates height from depth. It can enhance the drama of a scene with vastness or mystery or reflected light, or it can render it somewhat comic. Water is not a floor to stand upon but a surface to sink into.
Zones where fluidity meets solid ground can complement these ideas or compound them. They contain an ambivalent sense of time. No one is being hurried through these scenes, butthey're also not putting down roots. I like to think of these as floating rather than fleeting moments.
This is something of a sister series to Historicals. Both look at types of threshold environments.
