The Point Store Gallery on Saturna Island, BC, is featuring some of my photos this month, until September 25th.
As an experiment, I got some of my pictures printed on aluminum and on acrylic, with very interesting results.

The day I took that picture, I had wandered to East Point, on Saturna Island and I was concentrating on the kelp. The previous night had been windy, and the shoreline is always interesting after a big wind…
When I looked up, there was a gift waiting for me: the sky. And these people by the former fog alarm building obligingly provided scale to this grandiose sky.
Speaking of the shoreline after a big wind: a lot of kelp ends up on the shore at low tide. Bull kelp, in particular, fascinates me.

Wet kelp is very sleek. Its lines are seductive. I tried printing this one on aluminum; in the areas with light pigment, the metal shows through, highlighting the shining effect of the light.
During the opening, last week, I liked watching people interact with this picture. They walked back and forth in front of it, observing the changing light effects.
More experiments to come.
