Day 211 :: For Gathering Water

I saw these at the Alameda Antique Fair today and thought about carrying water. Water has become an increasingly important resource, one which we in the west have tended to take for granted. Here in Sonoma County, California, we are experiencing a severe drought and I think about our precious resource every time I turn on the tap or drink a glass of water. We are fortunate to have clean drinking water, while in other places in the world they do not, or they have to walk quite a distance to seek water and carry it back with them, perhaps in jars like these.
