One of these photos has appeared on this blog before but this arrangement of driftwood has stayed with me for the last few months. Last fall, when my husband and I saw these driftwood pieces on Cavendish Beach, I took a series of photos around the wood. The pieces were battered by the elements though away from regular wave action. If you don’t walk around them, you miss a great deal.
Some qualities of the wood are the same from all angles, its smooth and rough elements, with projections, lines, holes, colours and marks.
However, as you circle it, the background changes as does the light and they highlight different pieces and areas.
Your position affects how and what you see.
And so it is with life sometimes.
This year, I will remember the driftwood!
