Almost fifteen years prior to writing this story, and before digital photography was common practice, I took a photography class in college that sparked a love to last a lifetime. Having been an artist all of my life, finding stories through the lens was like opening up my imagination to the layers of the everyday world with a new and exciting medium.
I took the following images for a project similar to EJ’s, with a friend watching my back during not-so-safe hours. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that my own art would inspire a story to be written later in life.
Look into the depths for what’s hidden within.
It’s more than water.
It’s a story.
