Street: Beavertail hut on the Rideau Canal Skate-Way

Beavertail hut on the Rideau Canal (January 24, 2015)

I’ve been in a number of discussions with those who would take issue with labeling this image as “street photography” because of the lack of a “street” and/or a distinctly urban environment within the image. I use a definition that fits within that found on Wikipedia.

Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. The subject of the photograph might be absent of people and can be an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.

Next up, what did Robert Capa really mean when he said

If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.

Gone Fishing

The weather has finally been cold enough for long enough that we were able to get out on the ice this morning and cut the first holes of the ice fishing season. It’s a grey and windy day here but our efforts paid off and there are some nice pan fish on the counter to be scaled and fried.
