This is a series of photographs that I took in Vancouver, in front of Canada Place, along the shore as I began taking pictures of the pedestrians walking in their reflections in the puddles. If we look closer into the water that falls into the ground, that comes from us, what is it about us that is reflected back? Does the reflection of who we are in the water tell us anything about ourselves? What is it about us that stay, on an experiential level, and what leaves us? I took pictures along the shore in Vancouver in The Lighthouse, the Bird and the Poem on the Shore (www.thepoemontheshore.com) asking myself these questions and looking at my camera to see where my search would lead me as I downloaded theses pictures at home. These photographs are the beginning of this search in January 2016 after a wonderful friend, who was my uncle died. When I reflected on what I was looking at in the pictures, I began to see that these pictures could become a part of a story about memory, life and loss.
If we take enough pictures on a question, the answers may eventually begin to take shape on the screen. I will let you look at these photographs and see what you can find in them.
Thank you always for looking at my art.
