Do you know the name W. Eugene Smith? I didn’t know the name until one of my Flickr.com contacts left a comment on one of my photographs. The comment, which has since been removed because I deleted and subsequently re-uploaded all of my photographs on Flickr, read: “Like the “Walk to Paradise Garden”. I used Google to search on the phrase “Walk to Paradise Garden” and learned of a famous photograph taken in 1946 by W. Eugene Smith.

Now, on to my photograph. Bob and I made a 20-minute stop at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary in Jamestown NY on our way home from a motorcycle event that we attended on May 31st. We visited an eagle called Liberty and took a short walk around a pond.
Then we entered the forest. There was a man, woman and a young child walking ahead of us. I wanted a photograph of the forest trail that we were on. I snapped a picture.
This is the photograph on which a Flickr contact left the comment “Like a “Walk to Paradise Garden”.
I want to thank my Flickr.com contact, Brian Corll, for his kind comment that led to my discovery of W. Eugene Smith and his photography.
