My time in Bali grows more special to me as the year continues on. What began as a trip to get away from drama in my personal life morphed into a rewarding experience and a reminder of who I am and that the person I’ve been claiming to be (to myself mostly) is, in fact, who I want to be. That may sound like platitudes to you but maybe you have experienced moments in your life that are similar. As I sit and write this email to you from a cozy desk in BC, I am reminded of the small wins that have come over the past months. I am grateful to you for being a part of them and for joining me in these journeys on social, as collectors, and in spirit.

Please enjoy this new experience from Bali, “Higher Self.” I captured it in a unique way, by putting all my trust in a stranger. I asked Gina to hold my hand as I pivoted myself against a ledge in the wall of the infinity pool and leaned way back until both our arms were outstretched and I was completely extended over two meters of saltwater with my only camera inches above the surface. I hovered there and tried to manipulate the focus and the shutter with one and align reflections while timing the tiny waves. It wasn’t risky like scaling a mountainside is risky, but worry and excitement mingled with the light just the same!

Higher Self is my third release from Bali. My first being the black and white “Room For One and Their Dreams” and the second being the grand waterfall “Sekumpul, Island of Gods” Head to their microsites to see high definition detail shots of each of the works, including Higher Self.
