“In the outdoors, one of Andre’s favourite icons to photograph is the fire hydrant at Waterton Park. Until he mentioned it to me, I had not noticed it. Like the others, I was focused on the mountain range and lake beyond. Maybe this a metaphor for how Andre thinks. Others not seeing what is bright and colourful right in front of them. The bright red juxtaposed against the majesty beyond. Thank you Andre for opening my eyes to what is in front of me. Subjects, focus and depth of field, attributes important in life and for the camera. My mentor and my friend, Andre, you mean the world to me.
