fragile wisps of grey
wash the colors from my eyes
monochrome daydreams

 

Week 02 - Morning PaddleWeek 02 - Morning Paddle

Morning Paddle was made early in the morning during the return from a wilderness canoe trip in Northern Saskatchewan.  This is an image that is about nature or rather the stillness that comes first thing in the morning on a lake.  In this case, we were canoeing, and the pelican glided right by us like we were standing still, probably in search of the first catch of the day.  Underneath it must have been paddling like crazy but of course on the surface, it seemed calm and majestic.  The moral is, things that seem smooth and effortless often requires considerable effort.
