“Leaves on the Water”
by Wall Grimm
Do you take those by yourself?
Yes I do, not much of a photographer at all, it’s just a nice camera. I took this one last year, it’s in the old Wall Grimm directory. I like this picture because it has the reflection of the red trees in the water, and leaves floating on top.
Okay, this makes my leaf shot look pathetic!
Nah, don’t say that. It’s not the picture anyway, I was fortunate to have those bright red trees with a really blue sky reflected in the water. I had nothing to do with that. Besides, your leaf shot evokes a kind of melancholy I think, and Autumn can be a symbolic and literal time of change and transition. Sometimes it’s hard to let things go, but there’s hope for what’s to come. Your image is poetic in that way.
It is quite a contrast from Grimm’s melancholy musings to your optimistic outlook.
Well, Grimm has some bouts of optimism, and there’s a lot of subtle suggestions of it, it’s how he keeps going. And it’s because the Grimm stage is behind me, I’ve learned ;)
I am thrilled the Grimm stage is behind you, but feel selfish that I am glad you had that stage to begin with. I am really enjoying the Journal. And I believe you have most likely learned by surviving — the harshest teacher of all.
I’m definitely glad that I’ve experienced everything I did in my life, because I’m in a good place now, and that was the path that led me here and made me who I am now. And thank you. Glad you’re liking it. I love writing it.
