Impressions

I enjoy the impressions images make on me. When I see something that tickles my creative eye, sometimes I pause to wonder why. If I snap a pic of it, usually they don’t fully capture what I saw and sometimes they capture an impression that wasn’t there in the moment.

When I saw and snapped this, it was to capture the creative impression from long shadows across the wharf. As a photo the impression that stands out is that Stearn’s Wharf looks like an aircraft carrier full stop in a calm sea of linear ripples. This next one was a much bigger surprise.

Sure the sail in sunshine above an already sunset sea made an impression, but keep in mind that we’re 1/4 mile away so the scene is vast and there are many other remarkable things to look at. When I cropped the zoom pic, the impression became one of thrilling motion beneath a brilliant balloon suspended in space.
