It's in the lines

It’s in the lines, originally uploaded by seyDoggy.

Now I know this is not your classical, uncluttered, simplified composition and I know it breaks most of the rules of good photography but there is something about this shot that gets me. I am pretty sure it’s in the lines and the reflective quality of the water.

Looking into the reflection draws you into a place you know you can’t get to. You see the reeds there but only as a mirror of their true selves. And the tree stump with it’s tentacle like grass dips a few blades into that other world just to tease us.

Or maybe it’s just because I was there. Who knows. I like just it.

Shot in the Huron Natural Area, Kitchener Ontario.
