We love autumn in New Brunswick. As soon as the leaves started changing, we headed out to our favourite trail for a fall sunset walk.
“In the life of a photographer, whose art is created in tiny fractions of a second, thirty minutes is a sustained thought. Thirty minutes, the length of a child’s ballet class, a quick sauce’s simmer, a commute, is long enough to witness change and short enough to be over before you know it. We offer you here our monthly results of thirty minutes of watching and waiting and recording, of rendering permanent those fractions of a second that slip past in the time it takes to watch a television show. Thirty minutes in the life.“
I have joined an incredible group of photographers for a blog circle documenting thirty minutes in each of our lives. Make sure you click the link at the end of this post to continue the loop!
The simple joys of our favourite place
Isn’t it funny how you can go to the same place over and over and it somehow never looks the same? That’s how I feel about the Oromocto Wetlands. Just a simple little trail near our neighbourhood, but it changes with each visit. There are always new things to discover.
I have taken photos there dozens of times and even the things that stay the same look different through my lens each time.
This time Sofia brought my old camera along and it made me even happier to see her documenting our walk just like I do.
I’ll never stop documenting our walks, even if it’s the thousandth time we go there. These photos are our memories, and seeing our favourite place change with the seasons will always bring me joy.
Below are some of the photos Sofia took on our walk. I’m so impressed with her eye and love seeing our adventure from her perspective.
Next in our blog circle is Janet Crouch Photography. Go see what her thirty minutes was like! And don’t forget to check out all the other posts in the circle too!
