‘Under Your Wing’ – Day 343/365

‘Under Your Wing’ – Day 343/365

I used to think photography was something you could just learn, like reading, and then be good at it, as though these picturesque moments were just littered through life. ⁠
.⁠
But I’ve come to believe when I see a photo like this one, that a true photographer is one who observes life so deeply, that just maybe their real gift is seeing into the future – seeing a moment that will unfold just before it passes.⁠
.⁠
Brilliant photographs are prints of patience, snaps in between seconds of silence, evidence of the conviction of life’s unfolding.⁠
.⁠
This photograph was taken by my dear dear uncle, who took me under his wing, sharing his passion for Pentax and spending many hours with me in the icy woods of Aurora, patiently teaching me the technicalities of photography and also sometimes how to see the moment before it unfolds. 💙⁠
