Many meters apart and one-meter up
As you probably know, I have continued to work since the beginning of the global/local pandemic. Which has been a blessing, in that it has given my days purpose and, of course, continues to support my family. At times, it has been busier than I would have imagined and it has also been tedious as well. One way that I have been dealing with the changes and uncertainties of our current “normal,” is to get on the water as often as possible.
Increasingly, I have been taking a camera on the water with me, when I paddle SUP or surfski (a type of fast kayak). The view from the water is unique and I can paddle to places I can’t otherwise reach.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, when time has allowed, I have been getting on the water for some beauty, exercise and photo making. Unless it’s great wave-riding conditions, I will paddle to a destination in order to make photos. And then to another place that I see on my paddle. And so on. This has become my new normal for paddling and it’s making me pretty happy.
Below, you will find a combination of images made before and since the beginning of March.
Remember: be kind, be calm and be safe.
NB: Nearly all of these images were captured with the Fujifilm XF10, housed in a water-tight pouch. Shooting through the plastic film, occasional spray from waves, and water and boat movement help impart a unique look to the images, which I am enjoying.
