Windows for Reflection

Butchart Garden Wall

There is a form of photography intended for screen backgrounds or desktops. Some people prefer pictures of beautiful women, some pictures of their families.

I search for more abstract subjects, those that provide a sense of peace, an antidote to the computer teechnology.

These still lifes are everywhere. In a small corner of Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, there is a quiet place with peaceful light. Not many of the hundreds of tourists stop there while there are some many amazing plots and arrangements nearby. Yet, this is a regenerative place. See if you can find it when you go there.
