This week’s MotD theme: Water

Romanian photographer, Sergiu Bacioiu, shot this beautiful, perfectly timed photo of water drops and related ripples. How cool that this looks similar to yesterday’s mandala to color: MotW/MotD! And look at all the circles (mandalas) created by dropping just one thing into a body of water: the ripples and the water drops.

About the ripple effect from DoodlesAndJots.com

When the rock hits the water and it is met with some resistance, the surface is displaced not only down but outward as well. Then the disturbance is transferred from one water molecule to the next (the way a rolling ball hitting another ball will cause it to roll) and a radial wave forms. This process continues to repeats as long as the center continues to “bounce”.

You can view more of Sergui’s beautiful photographs via his online portfolio.

Inspiration for Today

Everything we do has a rippling effect. What are we rippling?

Happy Coloring!
