# 253 - "Reflections. . ."

“When you approach something to photograph it, first be still 

with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your 

presence. Then don't leave until you have captured its essence.”    
 - Minor White

My wife and daughter acknowledged my retirement with a weekend moose shoot in Maine with noted photographer, Mark Piccard. Mark knows moose! He was able to steer our group to the best viewing areas to “shoot” the moose without putting us in any precarious situations. Gordon is an old-timer who entertains the locals with his laidback outlook on tourists. He managed to feed in this stream for well over an hour. 

Mark was recently at a local camera club when he told me Gordon will no longer be putting on a show for anyone. I chose this shot because of the story it told – Gordon feeding.

EMO, Deana, and Joyce chimed in on the "Burano Window."
