Sometimes things just come together. I felt they did in the scene that unfolded in front of me on a winter day in Hamburg, NY as I was exploring the village with an old-fashioned film camera loaded with a black and white film in my hand. I wandered the streets trying to capture old subjects in new light (and on "old" medium), looking for new subjects and new angles, eventually finding my way to the Centennial Gardens Park and 18 Mile Creek Overlook. Walking down the steps trying not to use them as a toboggan I found myself facing the scene below. All in winter white, all black and white, with the creek disappearing behind a bend and hiding behind trees of various shapes. The shutter clicked and the suspense was on to wait until the roll was finished, developed, enjoyed for the first time, then scanned and enjoyed again. Sit back, relax, imagine you're standing there by the trees watching the water flow, getting lost in your own thoughts with the rest of the world disappearing, even if just for a brief moment.
