When I was a kid and the teacher asked me what painting I’d like to reproduce for my drawing class, my answer was always ‘The Great Wave’ by Hokusai.
Growing up, my favourite painting has always been and still is ‘Wanderer above the Sea of Fog’ by German painter Caspar David Friedrich.
When reading poetry, am always captivated by that poem that goes
‘The most beautiful sea hasn’t been crossed yet…’
by poet Nazim Hikmet.
So you can imagine what comes next…
Taking pictures of the sea is so challenging: you’ve got a fraction of a second to get the shot of that perfect wave, otherwise is gone forever and will never be the same again..
