Port Moody, British Columbia - 2009
What this is...
Reflections of a dock and piers in the waters of Burrard Inlet.
My thoughts on this image...
I cannot resist photographing water. From the Pacific Ocean to the pond in our back garden, water holds an endless fascination for me; add light, texture and reflections and the camera simply must come out.
Two of our dearest friends in the world run a wonderful B&B right on Burrard Inlet in Port Moody. On one visit, I wandered down to their dock and the combination of calm water, sunlight and reflections were putting on quite
a show. The patterns and fluidity of the shapes formed in the water reminded me of an abstract painting more than a photograph.
Everything within this image is taken from the real world, it actually existed in the moment
I pressed the shutter yet vanished the second after that. Only a photograph can capture the "decisive moment" and one of the reasons my camera kit is a constant companion in my travels.
