...It's All Wrong, It's All Right...

I shot over 650 images on our two-week vacation to East Hampton last month. Yesterday I finally loaded them to my computer. I clicked on 15 random files in photoshop to start processing them...I have to start somewhere, no?

These were shot when Hurricane Bill was pounding the east coast of the United States. We weren't allowed to swim...to be honest, who would want to? The ocean looked like it was breathing and fighting for something. I wasn't sure what - it was just so alive. I felt mesmerized by it. I wanted to walk toward it. No, I wanted to run toward it - I wanted to run for it as though it was going to feed me and nurture me with all its strength.

Radiohead - All I Need

And the images reminded me of this song by Radiohead. I started to get the goosebumps when they were opening on my screen. Does that ever happen to you?

All I Need

I'm the next act
waiting in the wings
I'm an animal
Trapped in your hot car
I am all the days
that you choose to ignore

You are all I need
You are all I need
I'm in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

I am a moth
who just wants to share your light
I'm just an insect
trying to get out of the night

I only stick with you
because there are no others

You are all I need
You are all I need
I'm in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

It's all wrong
It's all right
