Description - Liquid Poetry: The Wonder of Water by Patrick Macrory

Patrick Macrory describes himself as keen but not particularly skilled in photography. Ten years ago he was taking photos of two of his grandchildren in a water park in Oregon, and as an experiment, he took a few photos of a fountain at very high speed (1/4000th) and with a long focal length (400mm). He was surprised and pleased by the results, and since then has been taking photos of fountains whenever he could. Some of his best are in this book, each accompanied by quotations about water by authors and poets throughout the ages, ranging from Heraclitus to Conan Doyle to Philip Larkin to Yoko Ono. AUTHOR: Patrick Macrory grew up in the United Kingdom. After three years practicing as a barrister in London, he moved to Washington, DC, where he has practiced law, specialising in international trade. He is a keen amateur photographer, and has had two shows exhibiting his photography, one in Washington on the subject of Japan, and the other in London showing the photographs in this book. SELLING POINT: A collection of remarkable and eye-catching photographs of water, together with quotations about water, in poetry and prose, from poets ranging from Heraclitus to Yoko Ono 45 colour photographs
