It was a long walk by the Charles River from Harvard Square and then along Greenough Boulevard. I had set myself a time limit for venturing forth and then I having to turn back. But somehow I always lose track of time as curiosity overwhelms common sense. There’s always one more thing to see around the bend in the road or over the banks of the river. But no matter how much I ache the following day, when I look at the images, its always worth it.

Bright afternoon light on the Charles River.

Several analogies came to mind. The sun like liquid gold spilling over rocks into the sea. The sun in a bucket being dribbled from the heavens into the waters below. Jackson Pollack with a wide paintbrush and blue canvas and working only with shades of gold. In the end as in the beginning it was simply reflections of mostly bare branches and refraction at work in the gentle rolling waves of the Charles River.

One day I went wandering by the river because I felt a little lost. I thought I might find focus on the leaves fallen in the water but the sun was at such an angle that I could not get the right shot.  I kept wandering by the river, in hope, still focusing my camera on the leaves.

A leaf or two I did find but they were not exactly what I sought and so I continued my journey by the river, in hope, seeking something, though I knew not exactly what.

I grew cold and frustrated. There I stood on the banks of the Charles River knowing I had to give up.  As I paused, undecided of my direction, my eyes rested on the waters — you see, the sun was so low it was hard for me to look up.

Waters lapped upon the shore, cascaded over the rocks and swirled small broken branches about. A lovely sight especially when I realized in the water the blinding light was subdued. It was a delight.

No doubt there was beauty behind me and there would be beauty before me but on this particular journey I found the beauty right in front of me. And that’s what I chose to photograph.

The surface of the river along the Charles River Esplanade .  It was a sunny afternoon, the waters churned by gusts of wind and the wake of many canoes and kayaks.

Reflected in the waters are the usual plants found by freshwater and also the long lines of neighboring buildings.  No fish have I seen at this juncture yet nor turtles or frogs.  The ducks seem to have a good time when they drop in, and there are many colorful dragonflies.
