Winter Solstice Trilogy, Part III: Winter Solstice Reflections
Winter Solstice Reflections
Twenty-five years ago, I took a photograph of my son, Ian, at the lake in front of my parent’s house, the house I grew up in. It was in the beginning part of December, right after Jenness Pond had frozen over. This year, Jenness Pond is right on schedule: it froze over for the first time two days ago.
I've always loved this photograph, not just for the composition but because it connects me, simultaneously, back to my roots and into the future through Ian.
This year I reworked it in photoshop and entitled it Winter Solstice Reflections.
If you are interested in the reveries this photograph stirred in me, you can read about them in my Novermber 3, 2010 blog entry entitled Be Careful What You Wish For.
