Boat Fog Photo – A Latent Poem Awaits – photo by Tim Dicke

From Tim Dicke, a Baltimore photographer, in his photo of the day email this evening:

Boat Fog (c) Timothy Dicke

“Hi, Today I started scanning in my old portfolio. The photos were Kodachrome 64 slides, transfered to 4″x5″ inter-negatives, then custom printed. This was mid 80’s in January. There was snow on the ground but the temperature that days was in the high 50’s. There was fog everywhere. This is along the Susquehanna River at Rock Run Mill, the building in the background. I have been back many times and I can’t figure out how I got this photo. It looks nothing like this. Thanks, Tim”

This photo is one of those that just emanates a poem. Unfortunately, I’m too exhausted tonight to think about one, but I wanted to share the photo. And if anyone else is inspired to write a poem from this, let me know. I’ll share it with Tim too. It’s a magical photo.



ps. it is interesting sharing a winter photo in the heat of the summer. It was over 100 today in the Maryland region. Seems cooling to absorb this photo.
