Someone once said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” I visited Change Islands with the Gander photography group this past Saturday. Quite the change from Gander’s fast pace.
A few days prior to my outing, I had mentioned to mom I needed to pack a lunch for the trip. Without hesitation she offered to make homemade tea buns. Not one batch, but two. Raisin and plain for the group.
I had an idea to photograph a tea bun with scenic Change Islands in the background. My picture was taken at the abandoned village of Puncheon Cove. In the distance you can see Fogo Island.
As everyone knows, food triggers many a memory. My image reflects a quieter time. A simpler way of life in rural Newfoundland, where feelings and memories of home and family come to mind when eating comfort foods. I’m sure my fellow photographers will remember their Change Island adventure the next time they eat a homemade tea bun. For me, my image represents home.
