Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #082 - The Shortness of Life

This was photographed at a beautiful tourist spot at a regional park in China, known for it's photographic beauty. There were literally a hundred photographers there that morning, all photographing the sunrise over the lake and the early morning fog.

After the sun had risen above the horizon and the fog started to dissapte, all the tourist photographers piled in the tour bus and headed out — the photography at that spot evidently now concluded. As far as I was concerned, the action was just picking up.

As I composed this image, I had several of the departing photographers stop and ask what I was photographing. One of them asked to look at the screen on my camera, then nodded in understanding. I hope the fog really did dissapate. Who knows?
