The Life Aquatic

As tempting as it may be to use that headline for a Bill Murray post, it’s much better served for this young lad and the remarkable photo that was taken of him.

I just really like the composition of this shot, with the bubbles and ripples in the water, to his eye being perfectly open.  The blue background also helps give this photo a slightly surreal quality.  I actually had to take a moment to realize that his lobes were stretched, as I was focused on everything else in the shot.

  1. When I first saw this photo, I thought it was pretty cool. Then I read the post and realized that yeah, his eyes are indeed open under water. Then the picture freaked me out for some reason.
