Recent readings made me realize how much we are connected to a location: where we come from, where we made memories good or bad, and how we depend on the location for so much.
This photo was taken as a gift for a friend: this is where the individual spent their summers and vacations with family and friends. Special events happened at this location.
I think it is helpful to stop and think of where we are and what we are doing. This pandemic certainly has made us ponder these questions - some of us have found answers and others are still searching. As photographer, I am drawn to locations that create an emotional impact for me and hopefully those who see my images.
I try to sit quietly to get a sense of what is special or emotive about a location, and then try to capture the feeling.
This particular lake (well known to people here locally) is a place where you can let yourself be immersed in the quiet feeling of the water, let you thoughts go deep into your sub-conscious, recall special moments from your like, or just zone out.
I find the exercise brings peace, and let's me regain a sense of balance.
I hope you will enjoy it.
