Columbia River Splash…

The typical Gorge wind was blowing out of the West and a near shoreline, protruding rock produced splashing wave after splashing wave. I captured a few, not wanting to soak the camera too much.

Wood smoke…

along the river’s edge. The smell reminds one of camping. The leaves fall like big snow flakes, fluttering down to form  an orange and yellow carpet. Later the river will rise to wash them away.

Photography: Why Bother? For later….if not now.

Me Ft. Rock SBMuch like my fly tying is “impressionistic” vs. “realistic”, my photography is also impressionistic vs. disciplined. Intuitive without all the calculations. Of course, auto settings etc. make one lazy I suppose. But, I prefer to look outward and be less concerned with settings. I try to be more knowledgeable, but it is an effort.

Memories, traditions, family heritage, history perhaps all play a potential part in why I capture this image or that. Beauty, contrasts, majesty and power sit before me or pass like the wind. Maybe caught or the moment lost. Artistic, exploration, documenting or experimenting.

Tonight as I took a photo of my daughter, a young woman now, sitting on the steps of her first non-university like accommodations, I was cataloging the present, but also the future for decades from now. The young woman, many years later, older. Who took that photo? What was that day like for the young woman and for her parents? Childhood gone. Transitions. Bittersweet. Far from home. New beginnings etched on the young woman’s face to be seen years from now and admired. “Now who took this photo? Probably Dad.”
