As much as you paddle, and as much as you keep strapping on your armbands, sometimes you can't stop the sink. Let my legs go limp for a few minutes, let the waves wash and cool down the heat. I let the energy drain, just felt the coolness of the water hug my body. The embrace is so tempting, so easy to just let it comfort you down to the bottom of the ocean floor. I know it won't help, but a few minutes won't hurt.
This is a shot for violinist Craig Owen - he came to me wanting some shots that had never been done before. He played the whole way through this shoot, and I think we got the most bizarre looks I've ever had. Thanks Craig, for being such a trooper and actually doing this!
