THE IMAGINATION

In his later years after retiring to his farm in Ramon California, Walt Girdner uses his phtography to capture images that captivated his imagination and the imagingations of those who view his photos.  Many of these photos were captured on color film at close range (Macro Photography).  These photos gave the impressions and shapes of animals, and objects in the most unexpected forms. The photos he took were intended to stimulate the imagination where the shapes of the photographic subjects represented something else. The viewers would find an owl within and abalone shell or a ghost in a bit of sea foam and the letter A in a set of sticks.

 

Walt Girdner believed in the power of the spirit and part of that power was the Mind's ability to imagine.
