Walkabout and Listen
When I arrived on the island of North Haven I walked around the port for a short while and then wandered off down the road to see what I could find.
Overlooking the harbor of this small island people were coming and going. I smile when I look at this photo for there is a micro composition of a person walking out a doorway. I was timing the two boats approaching the docks with the person walking in their direction from the dock.
I stopped and backed up to hear better. Then I just stood and listened to what I thought may have been a violin being played.
I stood for quite a while and watched a gentleman walking up the street. He saw me standing there with my camera over my shoulder and asked if I was waiting to take a photo of him? I responded "no, I'm listening to the music coming from this house". His response "that's my house, my son is practicing the cello". A "moment" - not photographed - but certainly one I'll remember.
Sometimes in life it's best to just listen
