Week 16 – self portrait

Week 16 Saturday 15 September to Friday 21 September 2012

Self portrait. Williamstown 2012.


Does man ever look sillier than when trying to impersonate a fish?

Snorkelling’s a bit like surfing or fishing or hang-gliding or skiing (not that I follow any of those pursuits): the conditions have to be right. You need calm, clear water, for starters.

‘Had four short snorkel-swims this week: two on Thursday, and again on Friday. Water’s still pretty cold so this is a matter of getting one’s bearings again.

Bit by bit I’ll swim a little bit longer, a little bit further, a little bit deeper. When the conditions are right. Just right.

Self portrait, with sloping water.
