There are several recurring themes, including: water, my family and friends, the place where I live, city celebrations (some live and some the day after), millennium social issues, creativity with the medium, and first or last sunset or dawn.

To my eye, the most common thread of all was the edge between land and water. There were about 50 tripods with at least one wet foot that day. So would that be evolution, looking back to our watery depths, looking at what we've done to the land, feeling between? Between the inevitable consequences of our past and the uncertain hope to do better from now on. We feel free to take a look all around.
