It does not get more prosaic than a photo of flowing water. Yet, I get drawn back to photograph that rush and perpetual motion. Water flowing, rushing over obstacles.
Perhaps the attraction is in a surreal way in which the slower shutter captures that motion and force on film. Perhaps it is simply an opportunity to gaze into the moving water and feel like you are moving, while remaining still.
Rivers and creeks are always a great place to escape into a meditative state, think, reflect and recharge.
For this year, all the blog posts and images shared will be focused on this theme, let’s see how far these go. This particular set, Water Meditations No1, was from my very first 120 roll of Ilford Ortho 80 film, shot in an old Mamiya 6 folding camera featuring Sekor 75mm f/3.5 lens. The film itself was processed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X developer and scanned on an Epson V850 Scanner using Silverfast software. Images were captured on November 23, 2019.
