Dictionary.com gives me the following definitions for waste and oasis:
waste – 2. to fail or neglect to use: to waste an opportunity, 17. anything unused, unproductive, or not properly utilized., 18. an uncultivated tract of land., 19. a wild region or tract of land; desolate country, desert, or the like.
oasis – 1. a small fertile or green area in a desert region, usually having a spring or well. 2. something serving as a refuge, relief, or pleasant change from what is usual, annoying, difficult, etc.
O texano’s chosen subject matter can hold any number of definitions, some of which I’ve chosen and displayed above, signal the image’s meaning to me. But dig deeper and follow the links to over 30 various, sometimes subtly different, meanings of the word waste. For that matter, oasis’ defined terms aren’t much clearer. O texano may or may not have directed this shot, either way, he’s brought it to our attention through this stunning image and given us something to chew on. Thanks.
