#CanadasWater
Canada's Water image showing water bottle and faucet, by Abdullah Alarakhia

Image of the Week

After the hard working and compassionate people, #CanadasWater is her most precious resource. Photo by Abdullah Alarakhia at BJ Photo Labs Canada.

Waking up in the middle of the night (actually 3am) for prayers, it occured to me to capture this image emphasing how important water is in our lives and the lives of future generations. As much as it is the responsibility of the bottled water companies to fully respect the resource, each and every one of us needs to do more to value and appreciate every drop. We should not waste water, even if we had a flowing fresh water stream in front of our home.

Fortunately, I had my Leica 1970s 50mm Dual-Range M-Summicron in my camera bag, which I mounted on the very reliable Panasonic GH3. It was enjoyable taking pictures from different angles and exposures, and experimenting with the Panasonic GH3's multiple exposure picture. A good two hours past, without getting into too much trouble... Thank God, I still had enough energy to spend the entire day Sunday out with family.

This picture here is my mother's favourite from the batch. Abdullah.

Our plan is to show a new featured image every Friday or Saturday.
