Default The photographer: Dedication

This is an archival shot taken earlier this year at the floating lantern celebration (Toro Nagashi). Note the photographer is in ocean water waist deep shooting away at the lanterns.

I love it. I pity the poor photographer if he/she loses his/her balance and falls into the water. Salt water and cameras don't get along well.

My kind of photographer. I used to go into the water with my 35mm film SLR camera to get closer to the subject as all I had was a 50mm lens.

Calr, Spock,
Thanks for your comments. For the record I was also in the water but not waist deep more like ankle deep. Yep, I was worried about slipping in with my camera.
Aloha
