a poem of motion.


early evening in the park on the river in spring

crew teams have returned with the birds. 

“all were merged into one smoothly working machine;

they were, in fact, a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.”

-Daniel James Brown, The Boys in the Boat: 9 Americans and Their Epic Quest For Gold at the 1936 Olympics

  2. I travelled to Melbourne Australia once to film a TV show, and my first morning there I got up early to take a walk, which led me along a river – and came across early morning crews out on the water…I got a picture and it was one of my favorite shots…

  3. Love that book! Set here in my home state, I know all the Washington places in the book very well and the ones in Idaho too! University of Washington is my Alma Mater and I loved renting row boats at the boathouse down there.
