Lovely Water by Cian McKenna is a series of images and videos
McKenna on his project:
A bit of straight-forward and altogether meaningless eye candy you might say, or a visual exploration of a place I love. Lovely Water is an ongoing project that is added to following every trip down to the sea armed with a camera and a strong desire to go for a swim.
These images and videos are taken in a sheltered cove known deceptively as ‘the 40ft’ in Sandycove, Dublin. It has been frequented by all manner of nudey and not nudey bathers since the days of Joyce (RIP) and is altogether wonderful year round.
For sometime I have wondered, what love is to me? I know I have great passion for those things and people that have served me well in the past. I love my planet, because it has given me the resources to live and therefore I am passionate for its well being. I love my family because it has been there to my care even if sometimes it was otherwise. I love those few friends close to me, because they seem to view the world similarly to me, and with our mutual understanding of the world we find comfort and care in one another. But where does the rest of society stand for me? It has not given me much love or kindness, therefore I will simply only give it the truth of what it has brought me to be. This is what I think. I don’t think I am a negative person, I’m just honest.
Nice lighting in my study room.
Today’s word intros with the signification of instantaneous reaction, anger and dissatisfaction. It was a friend of mine who arose to this moment, hurting! Only my wanting were for his lack of yearning of loving and living that there is to acknowledge. How could someone so intelligent be ignorant to the world around him? I ask myself this of most people in my life. What is to have the right to govern and master the concept of living, when one is not living it. This doesn’t make sense, its just another weird thing about life, I guess.
