Thirty two years ago i was a young welder with a portable welding business . Photography was my hobby even back then. I always carried my 35mm. Yashica when I went out on a job.
Jake had recently moved to New Brunswick with his family. He became my neighbour and eventually my friend. Jake would sometimes hire me to do some of the more difficult casing welds for him. One cool Autumn morning while I was waiting for Jake to set up a casing, I noticed that the fine mud that had been deposited on the ground, had been transformed by the nights frost. I was looking at a work of art much like the work of Jack Frost the well known window artist.
That morning my camera was loaded with black and white film. I screwed a close up adapter to my 50mm. lens. I Knelt on the cold ground and released the shutter. now Jake”s mud is immortalized ! I am now in the Autumn of my life and Jake is in the winter of his.
