Rescue At Sea
At a recent party I chatted with a professional photographer who was photographing the event. Our conversation concluded along these lines:
Him: Are you a professional?
Me: Nah, an amateur who just loves taking photos.
Him: Do you take lots of photos?
Me: Oh yes, lots and lots.
Him: Well, then you're a professional.
Me: Why so?
Him: This is what professionals do. One of the many will tell the story.
I'm referencing this conversation today because of the photo I posted above. It tells a story. If you click on it, you will see a lifeguard on a jet ski towing what looks to be a small boat with a person in it. I have no idea what happened, but after downloading the photo, I grokked what was happening.
I had simply been doing what I always do: taking lots and lots and lots of photos. 98% of them are trashed, but every now and then, one has a intriguing or provocative story.
