Today, I took a walk down memory lane, actually memory trail. After being so taken by the beautiful natural scenery on Vancouver Island this weekend I decided to walk the paths of my youth with my Canon A590 in hand. Namely, I trekked through Murdow Fraser Park and the Capilano Woods.
Recently, I was discussing why I prefer photographing natural environments rather than urban environments with my friend Ryan. We agreed that the fascinating thing about forests is their dynamic nature. The photographs taken in these woods today represent a unique, specific time in the life of that ecosystem. One particularly nostalgiac sight was the decomposed trunk of the tree that I had the rare experience of seeing fall back in the summer of grade 9. After just about 5 years it has become a nursery tree that is supporting new life. I find that reassuring. Anyways, enjoy the photos.
