Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

WPC - Connected

I almost chose the most obvious picture for this week’s Connected photo challenge – a bridge I’d recently photographed. But as I scrolled through my archives I came across this one, shot in the same location and from the bridge I had intended to post.

It made me stop and wonder if this depicted connected even more than the bridge, because although I know nothing about rowing, looking at the picture made me think that not only are the rowers firmly connected to their oars, which in turn connect with the water, but there must be a kind of mental connection between the rowers as well to be able to anticipate the others’ strokes as well as trust them to do their part.
