Seasons of Time

The first page in this wonderful magazine my best friend gave me for Christmas had these amazing words...
'I was thinking the other day how like a magic wand a camera can be. Like a wizard, a photographer can point a camera at something and stop time, capturing a moment forever - or even more powerfully, transform what it sees into something totally unrecognizable.'
It made think of these three photos. Just by my house is this little walking bridge. It crosses not a river or a stream but more of a run off of water. Most people look at this running water as nothing special it's just a trickle of water separating the little sports centre island from the city. However what I see is an amazing view. Natural beauty in the middle of the city. As you can see I have stood on that little bridge and photographed fall, summer and yesterday I caught winter.
When the sun melts the snow and the trees start to bud I will know that spring has come. At that time I will walk once again to that bridge and finish my collection of Seasons of Time.
