THIS.

This has been too long in the works. Too long put on the shelf. Too long have I dreamed of this.

And sat nervous on the sidelines. Scared of the what-ifs. Told myself it wasn't worth the risk.

But what is THIS?

It is the fusion of so many bits of my soul into one art form. Water, family, sunshine, salt, nature, PHOTOGRAPHY.

I can't tell you how nervous I was bringing a camera out into the water. Sure, I had a housing, but I felt as if I was taking a huge risk.

On one hand, I could be ruining a valuable camera. And lens. Forever gone, victims of a saltwater bath. New paperweights for my desk.

On the other, I could be embarking on something so beautiful and fulfilling I couldn't even dare to dream.

I must be dreaming. I really must be dreaming.

I did dream. The seal was perfect. And the results have me itching to go again.

Do you have a passion that calls to you but are still hesitant to try? Life is too short to wait.

Thanks to my husband for sneaking this in while he held the camera. THIS is love, in so many forms.
