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.
