Frozen lakeside grasses and reeds! Maybe I have these too much on my mind at the moment – doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful.

Yes, I can see them, Alistair. A friend said, “snowstorm.” I can see that, too. All I see when I photograph these bins is an abstract composition, but later I make associations—helped by people like you.

I often don’t figure out what I’ve done until after I’ve done it!

This is unexpected, and I really like it. Black and white, the print version of the fish bin times! Don’t hate me if I say there’s a Pollock look here, too. I love it. It’s great the way the emphasis gradually shifts from left to right.

Thank you, Lynn. Yes, it was unexpected to see in person. I don’t hate you for bringing up Pollock—I saw that, too. It’s too bad I only got out to Cortez once this season, but I had a pretty good harvest from that one visit anyway.

Viewed this way, I can see the Pollock (note spelling) association, but when I rotate the image (or my head) 90 degrees clockwise, it takes on a more delicate, wispy feeling that brings to mind a Japanese sensibility.

Oops. I’ve fixed the spelling of the painter’s name in Lynn’s and my replies, lest the incorrect spelling confuse anyone. Thank you. I’m glad the photograph interested you enough to view it from different angles and to write here about your rotations. Thanks, Alan.

This latest image is marvelous Linda!

Thank you, Art. I’m pleased that you like it. I’ve never seen another bin with marks like these.
