A back channel on the Rideau river, almost overflowing with spring meltwater
bare branches overhead, almost bursting with budding leaves
swirling, artistic impressions almost dancing on the water’s surface.
The day was muggy, buggy and drizzly, but with restless kids, that didn’t stop us from getting on our bikes and heading out for a quick geocaching misssion.
After a quick snack at a saskatoon bush, our last cache had us arriving at the river’s edge, with still water, a flat white light, and some overhanging branches creating the perfect little hideout.
Unfocused forests, blurry water scenes, surreal sunsets.
I used to love seeing documentary nature shots, true to reality, showing the width and breadth and diversity of the natural world. But now I am so much more inspired by an abstract take on the world, where physicality is reduced to colour, shapes, lines and movement.
Eddie Soloway’s images are where I want my photography to be. ‘Nuf said.
