The Quarry - an experimental photo

If you pop through a hole in the right fence in the right suburb in the right city and walk up the hill for the right amount of time, you will reach The Quarry. It's filled with water since it's not actively quarried any more.

Everyone assures me the water is fine. It's beautifully blue and clear. Maybe a little bit too blue and clear.

Everyone assures me that it's fine to trespass there. Everyone does it, apparently. The company that owns the place doesn't care, apparently.

And, to be honest, I've not had any problems the dozen or so times I've been. Not from weird water or trespassing issues. So I, too, tell people that the water is fine, and that the company doesn't care if you trespass. I call it Diet Trespass. Trespassing Lite.

The very clear water gave me an idea, and the photo below is the result of that idea. Thank you to Taryn for being a willing jumper-into-the-water.

I think there is a lot of potential here, and I will keep experimenting.
