I take a photograph before every swim. I suppose at this stage I am slightly apprehensive and excited about getting into the water. The photos I take from practically the same spot but are so dramatically contrasting from each other. The weather, mood, colours and atmosphere make each one specially unique. The stretch of water and the point of where I am about to swim to is there ready to provide me with a new swimming experience. The dates and tides are also very much part of the work capturing that particular moment in time.
