the photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago...

"Nightswimming" has been amongst my favorite songs for as long as i can remember. or since 1993, rather. not only could i listen to it for days on end, it's also one of my favorite songs to play on the piano.

a few days ago i was browsing a new contact's stream - forty-onecrush who takes the most gorgeous beach and ocean shots. i came across one in particular that caught my eye - a soft, perfect b&w of her three friends who are barely little black marks way out in the ocean.

 

i'm not sure i'd ever have thought to go the black and white route on an oceanscape, but after seeing hers, i gave it a go. the pictures aren't that similar - i can temporarily give up my need for oversaturated colors, but it's harder to part with the hyper contrast/clarity!

 

so, thank you ms. forty-one! :)

every streetlight a reminder

nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night
