'Perception' is the name, the model name I suppose, painted on the upper side of the orange kayak.
It was my perception of the glowing colors of the scene that led me to walk along our neighbor's shoreline, take this shot, then move closer to read the 'fine print' on the boat and learn it's 'name'.
It's a strange name for a boat, but it sparks a mental conversation about the meaning of what we see and how we respond to it, and how we'll remember it. And even whether our perceptions would change, were we to see it one day earlier, or one day later, when we would be different people than who we are at that moment. I have even begun to wonder whether, when I photograph something, it is the objective reality I'm trying to capture, a chimera at best, or a reminder of my perception. A signpost for memory.

Today would have been my mother's 102nd birthday. I'm thinking of her. She would understand what I am trying to express.
