Man on the moon?
London, ON, June 2008 [Click to embiggen]
Last week's Thematic Photographic theme, glass, seemed simple at first glance. But like so many things in my life, it took a few extra and very welcome twists along the way. Ultimately, it turned out to be an elemental challenge that prompted some amazing responses from some amazing bloggers. Thank you all so much!
So instead of bucking convention this week, I thought I'd continue the trend with a similarly elemental theme, wood. It touches our lives in so many ways that it's difficult to imagine what life would be like without it. And all from something that started out as a seed and a dream. An amazing thing, this wood is.
I came across this somewhat startling scene while walking along a pastoral stretch of London's multipurpose path network. As I composed this macro shot beside the burbling river, an elderly couple passed by and asked what I was shooting. I explained my addiction to abstract macros, and they both nodded their heads and asked for a closer look. As I showed them the pictures on the camera's screen, they nodded their heads enthusiastically and said I should keep looking for stories in small scenes.
And so I shall.
Your turn: If you're new to Thematic Photographic, here's the lowdown. If you know the drill, I'll let you get cracking...
