Dialogue

The longer I do have photography as a hobby, the more it represents an open dialogue between me and nature, rather than speed and quantity oriented picture taking, how It used to right at the beginning of my photography journey. I am personally trying to develop my own active dialogue with nature, but in the same time I am trying to hear or better to say observe ongoing dialogues between other different nature objects and I put myself in the position of distant listener, who does not want to interrupt ongoing discussions.

Displayed photograph actually represents one of those “distant” once, where I was just silent witness of ongoing dialogue between the metal mark in the lake and surrounding mountains. That particular morning I really had a lot of time to observe the dialogue and to think how to capture it into single photograph, since I had to wait for Marek to set up his new Linhof, and you can believe me I did have a lot of time:) When I come back home from this summer lake trip I did not spent much time with those files. I returned to them again just few days ago, and I am enjoying this particular photograph as much as few months back when I took it on the shore of Lake Geneva. I will now print it and display it in our living room to see if I will be able to look at it every day for few weeks.
