“Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act – the defeat of habit by originality, of fearful conservatism and of comfort through familiarity – overcomes everything.” George Lois
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves”. Carl Jung (1875 – 1961)
I’m finally back and settled down after workshops / artist-in-residency with Parks Canada at Pukaskwa Natl. Park on the North Shore of Lake Superior – with over 600 images in my bag. Even though I was quite busy with daily presentations / talks and walks, I spend every free minute to bag some images for myself. I planned a shorter canoe-excursion down the coast, but, as expected, the ‘Big One’ is too choppy this time of the year. Oh well – next year in the spring.
Images here (some from Neys Provincial Park) are a collection of good old landscapes – one of the most familiar, used, and often abused subjects, especially at beautiful places like this. On top of it all rank – guess what – sunsets. Being at a populated campground, its amazing how at sunset an empty beach all of a sudden fills with people pointing their cameras at the sun, ending up with dark images and some orange stuff in the middle. I was the only one waiting until- and shooting long after sundown … and aiming in the opposite direction.
Naturally, landscapes tend to be of a more traditional make up, and so are these, but they are mostly with a twist of long exposure or as multi-exposures. It’s always the hardest thing to make landscapes that are not your run-of-the-mill post card or brochure. So – lets hear what you think…
More of other approaches next time, as series of the same scene in different light, simplistic horizons, as well as ‘the other’ things we can discover, despite the constant, in-your-face grand vista.
