Here are a couple of submissions to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere challenge.
This photograph was taken in Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C. during the nascent period of the gay rights movement. Protesters dyed the waters of the fountain red as a protest against government indifference to the AIDS crisis. The red was meant to symbolize the blood of those who had died needlessly. Does this remind anybody of what we are living through today?
The festivities in honor of Neptune began with a sacrifice of a bull on the seashore. This was always done at sunrise. The priests in their white robes would wade into the water in order to wash the blood from their garments. Wine was then poured into the sea, as the priests murmured a prayer whose meaning were long forgotten.
