Photography helps you to shift perspective, to see things you wouldn’t have noticed before, to notice things about the world that previously would have passed you by.
Looking through water – a puddle, a reflection, the still waters of a river – can show you things in a different light:
The first hints of the colours, changing
An impressionist painting
Trees pointing skyward, catching my eye in the water as I bent down to watch a leaf. The way the water stretches at the edges of the stone is fascinating to me – I’m sure there’s a physics lesson in there somewhere!
An early leaf, fallen in a pool of the Old Water
The promise of the reds, yellows, oranges to come, the water of the stream, bending round the corners of the leaf.
However many times you think you’ve seen a season.
However many times you think you’ve walked a walk.
There is always something new to see.
Always, always, always.
