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.

Imagination doesn’t just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving them, or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. Head teachers would call this escapism, but they would be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful, branch of writing there is. And this is why I don’t, and never would, write Real Books. Diana Wynne Jones, “Why Don’t You Write Real Books?” (via ballerinaduck)

“You should have been the Mockingjay. No one would’ve had to feed you lines,” I say.

“True. But no one likes me,” she tells me.
