#07 - Reeds

In 1971 Gia-fu Feng and I lived in the same northern Vermont town to which I recently moved back. There we designed our edition of Tao Te Ching. I made this photograph alongside the dirt road we lived on then. It was the cover of the first Tao Calendar back in 1991. The "brush strokes" of the reed stalks and leaves are very much like the strokes of Gia-fu's Chinese calligraphy.
