What attracts us to our photographic subjects? In 1982 this was just ice on a sunny January afternoon, a moment enjoyed for its crispness and clarity, its abstractness. Suggestions. And I moved on. Now, another question—why do I see it this way today? That’s probably as unanswerable as the older question I didn’t pause to consider all those years ago. So I’ll continue looking at things, differently when I can, and not worry unduly about unconscious motives, or correct answers.
