Over the past eight years, and in all seasons, I have been photographing ephemeral beauties in the waters of a little urban stream that runs through Silver Spring and Takoma Park. MD.
The photos are tight compositions of the reflections of trees in, and the movement of leaves through, the creek’s waters. The reflections do not serve simply as mirrors, but as devices to explore the interplay of light and water (or ice).
Up close, sometimes with the lens almost in the water, light and shadows and reflections and water and ice behave in ways that cannot be captured with dry feet.
