Reflections on the Maskinonge
This was taken on the Maskinonge, a small river where I used to live. I spent many an hour on the rock from which this photo was taken, meditating, contemplating, swimming, and even watching moose splash in the water during the hottest days of summer. This was taken two years after we moved, as a kind of homage to this hidden spot on the river.
Author: My approach to photography could best be summed up by the quote, “Be still and look until you really see.” When I go out with my camera I try to let go of all preconceived notions about what I want to photograph that day and become as silent and present as possible, open to seeing whatever is there. I wait for a texture, colour, pattern, or play of shadows and light to catch my eye until I can almost hear it saying, “Take my picture please.” I do as little post-processing of my images as possible, as I prefer natural looking photos.
