Re: Fishing in a Canoe.


When I am travelling I occasionally run across some landscape the may be truly beautiful and decide to not photograph it—I just sit and take it in and tuck it away in my memory.

      Thank you so much for this virtual little movie played on my mind's eye.

A truly peaceful image conjured up by a few words. It rivals anything that could be photographed.

In addition to this miracle of images I find it interesting that vast, broad landscapes reproduced in miniature no larger than a couple of inches square, when remembered, in the mind's eye, are translated much larger than the print. The graphic format of the mind seems to automatically adjust according to the subject.

Is this  phenomenon ''alternative'' TO photography? Or part of it?


Good luck with your project.
