One of those ideal spring days arrived and I had the opportunity to take several photographs of the Grand River here in Southern Ontario. After sorting through my less than wonderful assortment of pictures I decided to settle on one in particular showing the bridge and a few buildings along the opposite shore. I played around with the composition and finally decided that I didn’t want any man-made structures involved so this doesn’t act as a correct interpretation of the local, but I prefer my work to have little or no presence of human habitation. However, mostly I just liked the simplified version, the bridge and buildings just made things too busy.
