Gratitude’s Renaissance

Gratitude’s Renaissance #1 (example)

This photo was taken with a disposable camera at Indian Key Historic State Park in Islamoralda, FL. My best friends and I were living on a small sail boat off the coast of the Florida Keys, and had put the camera in a ziploc bag and snorkeled to the state park island. Right before jumping in, we noticed that there were a couple sharks darting around in the water, so we decided to swim quickly. Well…the camera ended up getting a bit water logged. I still took some pictures. I’m grateful for this moment because we knew the film would get messed up, but were enjoying each other’s company too much in a beautiful place to really care about the camera. It was insignificant. Once I got the film developed, I found that the water in the film had created a totally unique filter and pattern across all of our photos, and that makes them some of my favorite photos ever taken. They are unique, just like our trip.

Nothing here yet, check back later…
