then the century shifted
My friend Becca came up with this concept. You can see her photo here!
I was super excited to actually do something absolutely insane for a photo. We gathered quite the crowd on the other side of the lake and I nearly died in the water (It was really marshy and there was no solid ground. From the pictures it doesn't look that deep, but man the drop off scared me to death, haha. Thankfully I was sitting on an underwater log, otherwise I probably would have died. Just kidding, but seriously). The water itself was really warm and I had a ton of fun doing it. That's one thing I'm excited about when I move to the lower forty eight--I'll actually be close to other photographers who are willing to do crazy things like this (with strangers thinking we're insane) and who want me to do crazy things. It was definitely an awesome day.
P.S. I guess this is a good a time as any to announce that I'm moving to Oregon (specifically near the Portland area) for college, so if there are any photographers living in the area, I would absolutely love to meet up!
