A subtle poetry to the world


A subtle poetry to the world

I read a quote once about photography. It said that the two main ingredients are light and time. Light is the obvious one, but the paramount importance of time really is threaded through everything we photographers do. How much a photo can change based on whether it was created in this moment or that moment.

I really like this photo for the sake of the moment I made it in. A couple of moments before the boat was cruising across the lake, it was a different image then. I waited until the boat was out of the frame but before the wake could disperse. I liked the vague lyricism between the surface of the lake and the play of the clouds above it, hemmed in by the mountains on either side. It is a subtle thing, but I like subtle things. I can probably attribute that to my fondness for the photography of Minor White. If you are not familiar with his work, look him up, it will be a good education.
