A day at the beach

Great day for a swim
Port Stanley, ON
August 2012
Thematic. Multiple. Here.
This pic was taken precisely 9 frames before this one, and is shot almost directly into an overhead sun. Not the greatest choice for an angle - reflection off the water makes proper metering tough - but I found it fascinating to encounter two divergent scenes by simply pivoting my heels in the same spot.

That's photography, I guess: small differences in perspective that net major differences in bottom line results. A reminder, perhaps, that it's the little things that matter most, and it doesn't hurt to have a little reminder of that every once in a while.

Your turn: Where's that boat headed?
