Still Learning To See


I’ve long enjoyed photographing water in all three of its physical states—liquid, solid and vapor—finding endless variations of what is there waiting to be seen. Last Spring I created a show of 100 images of reflections in water and ice and there were thousands more images that I’d love to have included!

My friends in the f/7 group and I have been working with “water” as our theme this month and, as a result, I pushed myself to look beyond what I often see. I’m in the process of printing 31 images, many for the first time, that will hang in a group show this Friday, September 4th as part of Montpelier Art Walk (4:00-8:00 at 13 Main Street). The intent of this pop-up show is to share our work and get response from visitors.

Since all of you won’t be in Montpelier on Friday, I’ll share the images here over the next several days but, honestly, seeing this show, both my work and the work of six other wonderful photographers, is something not to be missed!

    Thanks! I especially love how the water almost looks metallic in your photos. 🙂

  4. John – Brilliant images! I don’t know what word to use to describe these, but “Pro” comes to mind. The ‘water’ work shows nature as a surrealist. Mostly speechless. Thanks.

  5. very nice john. we will all be water, with any luck
