Photographer's Note

Consider walking by a pond one day. A shiny stone catches your eye and you pick it up, handle and admire it, and then for no particular reason you toss the stone into the pond. The surface of the water breaks, ripples run, and the rock vanishes beneath the surface. You smile as you watch the pretty ripples and then turn and go on your way.

Have you ever stood and watched the stone sink until it disappears? Or imagined where the ripples went? Or where the rock finally landed? Have you ever considered how the pond has changed since you arrived there? How your tossing of the stone into the water might affect something else? We all view the tossing of the stone into the water differently, don't we?

Taken on the shore of Lake Simcoe, somewhere between Barrie and Orillia, Ontario. A chilly spring day. And me, trying on a new camera, since my last little camera doesn't want to work well anymore.

Please let me know what you think of this photo, or of the camera if you have an opinion. Thanks for stopping by, and looking.
