The animated evening sky is the subject of this series photographed on Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain estuary. What appears calm and still nevertheless flickers with differing sources of light, creating a contemplative vibe. Like a plank to the moon, the fishing pier transports meditation through mystery. The process of making this photographic series created from 2017-2023, makes me feel grateful to share as witness.
