Sau de Eau, Trinidad
© JH 2007
Sau de Eau off the North coast of Trinidad, West Indies
This foto of the island, Sau de Eeau was taken by my son, from his boat in 2007. When I first saw it I thought it was a painting.
As explained to me by my son, this area is a deep sea basin which is a depression of the sea floor more or less equidimensional in form and of variable extent. Scientists, geologists, meteorologists and marine experts will understand this as I am sure some of you will. I did geography but you can leave me out on this one!
My son took an interest in photography at a very early age which may have had something to do with the fact that my husband never went anywhere without his camera. I’ve lost count of the number of cameras we had in the house. Around the age of ten (none of us can remember exactly when) his Christmas present was a Pentax P30T which he tells me, he still has! So he went through a stage when he clicked anything and everything in sight not taking into consideration, at his young age the cost of rolls of film and developing. Major expense!! He also had ‘small library’ of books on photography.
By mid teens the novelty of camera, exposure, photography books, lighting and capturing that “Kodak Moment’ wore off.
If the above is anything to go by I am very happy to know that the ‘bug’ has returned, he once again never goes anywhere without his camera and we can look forward to many hours of enjoyment at his expense! Also, thank God for Digital cameras.
