David H. Gibson
I like to return to places where I have photographed. It always presents new opportunities to make further discoveries depending on light, seasonal differences and/or profound changes in the landscape.
|Cypress Island, Village Creek, Texas, 1987 -- David H. Gibson|
My favorite time to photograph is at early morning light. Roaming along Village Creek's wide white sand shores one encounters islands formed by the changing course of Village Creek. The cypress trees were on an island formed by one of the rearrangements of the sand. The early mist was an exciting aspect. It was a poetic moment. Later a major flood along Village Creek removed the cypress trees on the vulnerable islands of white sands.
|Grapevines, Cypress Creek, Wimberley, Texas, 2000 -- David H. Gibson|
Along Cypress Creek is one of my favorite places to be and so I usually return several times a year. There is always something of interest. The silhouette of the grapevines created by the mist rising for the creek was an ephemeral moment that resonated.
|Lotus Pond, Texas Gulf Coast, 1998 -- David H. Gibson|
The lotus pond is another place of many returns. The early morning in the quiet at the beginning of the day is a meditation. The lotus pond was profoundly changed after hurricane Ike. The areas of open water are almost all gone and the lotus pond barely remains. The trees were killed by the salt and the water birds have found other places of open water. The photographs are a reminder of another time. Changes continue and I keep looking.
