This photograph is one I will treasure forever & was inspired by my Dad.  Taken at 7.30am in Hagley Park, Christchurch early September 2012.  I went there with the intention to photograph the daffodils however with the mist & park bench I knew I wanted to photograph that.  First couple of shots I showed my Dad, he said it needs something else & sat on the bench telling me to take the photo now … this is the result!  Thanks Dad, I am pleased I listened to you 🙂

  1. Like it. Your dad’s a smart man. It emphasises the position of the observer. And if trees are souls, as they often are, then it shows them passing in time.

  2. Welcome Tracey. Funny how one can look at an image and find it immediately sentimental. This is how I felt about your image before reading your words. We all have someone we like to give that special place in our hearts. My father is also one of those people for me. Although I do not remember him in this context, your image immediately connected me with him. Thank you.

  3. Well done Tracey, great shot, Dad can be very helpful sometimes, I think most people would connect with this image on one level or another, nice treatment, could have been taken anywhere in the world. Keep up the good work.

  4. Welcome Tracey. It is an interesting thing about a photograph once a person is placed in it. I think it conects us to our sense of being human and our feelings of belonging, both in time and space and with our human clan.

  5. Tracey, thanks for joining us! A very reflective and quiet image – the present quietly drifting into the past. It has a lovely gentleness about it.
