Last week I completed a 5-day meditation retreat in the city of Halifax, NS. The title of the retreat was “Being Brave and Transforming Our World”
Meditation makes the world more vivid and after the course I found a lot of perceptions jumping out at me. After the retreat, I shot a photograph of a friend drinking wine in the rain on our deck at the back of the house. Without explaining further, the image encapsulated much what I learned at the retreat.
“Talk to strangers, let them take you to places.” – Mark Alor Powell
“Be aware of the way the camera compresses a three dimensional world into a two dimensional plane and use that to your advantage” – Nick Turpin
“Wait for the rain, it makes shooting on the street easier and more interesting.” Martin Parr
The Halifax Pride parade in 2008 was wet, but it made it all the more interesting.
This was an interesting shot. When I saw this the rawness of the colours jumped out at me. It was only later did I realise the nature of this image. It’s a good example of how your mind can change the way your perceive what you see.
The wet pavement made this shot a great deal more interesting.
