This is a remarkable photo. The ultimate silence of the touching of the water. More than in any other photo time is frozen. The Japanese have this remakable little word ‘ma’ to express the suspension of time. It leads me further on to ponder on the size of the lake, and allows me to think of the lake as being round, circular and encompassing all. Like in the evocative pictures of Van der Heijden. The mirrorlike surface draws my attention to the title. a self-portrait? How is Paul included in this picture?
Who is this mysterious I?
