Waves & Tanks

A day in Santa Monica with photographer-friend, Ray Spears, produced some new tanks for 116. 

I was standing on the boardwalk people watching and capturing some shots with my iPhone 6 when I looked over to see a kid take on an upcoming wave with no one around him. It was such a striking moment. The anticipation. The moment of tension before the crash, an abandonment of all reservations because there's no where else to go. It's not about being fearless but rather embracing the fear and in that fear finding safety. 

Here is the original and unedited shot:

I also designed this Unashamed mark for the collection.
