Spending time on the water is like soul food to me. Sure, as a writer I tend to spend way too much time indoors, so anything that takes me out into the sun is a bonus, but this is something deeper. Perhaps its the Pisces in me, yearning to be where the air tastes like salt and the wind and waves turn into a symphony. No matter the reason, being on the water renews me, as if the water washes away the dark places and the clutter from my brain, simplifying the world into a sea of tranquility.
When you combine this lure with my love of photography, it is pretty easy to see what many of my photos consist of. This morning was no exception. While my husband and son passed their time fishing, I captured some of the inspiration around me, hoping to immortalize it and to share it with you.
These photos were all taken today, out on the Indian River Lagoon. If you’re not familiar with it, you should check it out- it really is paradise. You can, of course, check my Flickr page to get a better view- and to see the thousands of other images I’ve uploaded.
