Photographic Memory


Reflecting on a Weekend
2010

Rickie Lee Jones said "You never know when you're making a memory" but in this case, I took a memory and made a photograph.
     Several years ago my wife and I spent a tranquil weekend at Kentucky Lake. I was impressed with the stillness of the water and the isolation we felt . . . at one point we were the only people on the water. Before we left, I bought this model sailboat to remind me of our peaceful trip.
     Recently I brought the boat into my studio to see if I could capture the feeling of serenity I get whenever I see the souvenir. It worked.
