While there are many things that my hubby lacks patience for, fishing isn’t one of them :). He can stand in the same place and fish for hours without taking a break, and he loves it! While we were on our mini vacation at Wright Point Resort, Mike spent every free moment that he could fishing off the dock or the point, and it didn’t matter if it was day or night, sunshine or rain. While he tried to catch the elusive Walter (remember the movie “On Golden Pond”?), I used the time to experiment with my camera.
One night as the sun was starting to sink in the sky, everything was bathed in those twilight shadows, and I spent some time taking pictures of an area near the dock where the water was full of these tall green weeds that stood anywhere from 6 inches to a foot or more out of the water. My cousin says they are known as arrow heads. With the atmosphere of twilight and the tiny swells on the water, I found that I could create abstract shots that were quite attractive. The water is a little grainy in the background and the arrow heads are not sharp, but I think that’s part of what appeals to me, so I didn’t even do much in the way of editing. What you see is exactly how it looked. I’m pretty sure that Mike thought I was crazy photographing weeds, but I think they’re beautiful :).
