Temagami - Lily pad

Temagami, Ontario is probably best known as the one of the last places in Eastern Canada with untouched stands of old-growth forest. I drove all day to get there, and for my sins didn't find a single really photogenic pine tree. The light was terrible, and it had just rained. I consoled myself with a walk through a little park just outside the town itself, and took a few pictures of the raindrops on the lily pads. I didn't realise I had anything until I scanned the negative, though. The folks who developed the prints had washed out the colour entirely.

August, 1999
