When you start looking closely, you notice more and more. I suppose that is something that I like to teach children.  One easily stops taking an everyday object or scene for granted. I believe it was either Alfred Stieglitz or Edward Steichen who said that they found their best pictures within 60 yards of their front door.  So taking a camera on a walk involves stopping and looking. And then, looking deeper and in this case, deeper into the water. And I liked the contrast between the larger stones and the water just beyond. I liked the dappled light within the water. I liked the floating seeds and plant matter in the deeper water. And I will probably never be able to find that area again. It was for that walk, that time.
