This last set of images have become personal. Lately I have been watched a couple of movies (I won't name them) in which one of the underlying themes has been the relationship between parent and child. Typically it has to do with the fact that the parent has in some way neglected or abandoned the child. The resolution is typically one of realization of the past and in some way to make up for it going forward. Now, it's not that these images necessarily show a parent neglecting their child. They don't. Just the opposite. They show what I did not have as a child. At least not that I can remember. My parents and I were not that close. And now that they are gone there is not much that I can do about it.
I do like these images because I also like minimalist photography and I think these fit the bill quite well. The two on a surf board lazily rowing around the lake. A big lake which engulfs them. The texture of the waves in the water changing as the wind changes strength and direction. I also like the allusion that the surf board is not in the water but appears to be suspended above it. Most of all I like it because father and son are together doing something if nothing more than paddling and talking and if you look close, they are fishing.
