THE STILL IMAGE

CAPTURING A MOMENT


Photography by Reg Good


Light of Day

Interviewed on CBC News Network during the Covid-19 crisis, Dr. Alam of Georgetown, a hospital anesthesiologist and family doctor, recounted how a frail and compromised gentleman in ICU, needing a ventilator, told her he didn't want to die on a machine. He wanted to die looking at the blue sky. She sat with him for a while, looking at the blue sky.

The first heart transplant patient was told the operation would be arduous and there would be little probability he would live long. He said he would undergo the operation if only to see the sunrise one more time.

Canadian novelist and playwright Timothy Findley writes of how his dogs each morning would rise and turn themselves to the east to greet the beginning light of day. Egyptian lore speaks of the baboon everyday exposing itself before the rising sun.

Perhaps this print could remind you, each day before you reach your last day on earth, to acknowledge the sacred sun and gift of a brief life the sun imparts.

Lake Ice Blue

Ice in lake Ontario after a few days of a cold snap, just west of Ontario Place along the shoreline of Toronto. I have not seen it like this before or since.

Temagami Rock

Along with my wife on a weekend art workshop in Temagami, I spent my time photographing. One of the painters lent me her macro lens and a whole new world opened before my eyes.

Trees

We can see trees as our lumber and shade and fuel during our sojourn on this planet, but for some,  down through the centuries and forever, trees have been teachers, teachers of wisdom. A searcher sits beneath a tree and learns of ancient days. A forest for some was not sustainable, that is a future lumber source, the forest was a domain of magic. To enter the forest was to enter another world. Wandering alone on a farm the day after Christmas, the trees around me were whispering, too faint for me to hear. Were they imparting deep mysteries or scoffing my ignorance? I hope in contemplating this image, taking much time, I might begin to see, then to trust, finally to listen.
