Artful Seeing

Squam Workshop #3

It was a perfect sunny Saturday morning for the last SAW activity of the weekend. We wore our hiking shoes and carried our cameras as Shari Altman guided us along the Five Fingers Point Trail (part of the trail system for Rattlesnake Mountain in Holderness, NH) for her workshop called "Artful Seeing". To keep us focused on looking at the natural world with different and questioning eyes she gave us creative challenges for color, composition, and light. She talked about her series of photos called "by the waters edge" which I was really intrigued by. I did take some photos during the morning with this idea in mind as she got me thinking about the interest to be seen in the many different ways and places that water meets the earth.
