“I have begun to think of life as a series of ripples widening out from an original center.”~S Heaney
Sometimes I will shoot something just for the quality of light. In this case, the sun was down low and the reflections of the clouds against the dark water, along with the ripples created by the duck’s movement, made for something interesting in my mind. Common but interesting. I always think that if you can take something and show it in a different “light” that that is good enough. Everything cannot be grand and epic and off the charts. I feel sorry for photogs that feel they have to provide that all the time to themselves and to others. I would think it breeds discontent. I am not saying not to chase these things but that you also need to appreciate the small, the commonplace.
