the water's edge

venice beach

 

because they are in perpetual motion, still images of waves upon the shore have always seemed untruthful to me . . . this long photograph, in my opinion, finally captures this image, and by glimpsing the waves' movements through this video window, i see things about them that i have never noticed before . . . that for me is one of the great pleasures of photography

 

i debated whether to keep the sound . . . in the end, the heightened recollection of a sunny afternoon among other beachgoers was too delicious to resist
