For the past year or so, I’ve carried a vision in my head- of a man dressed in white, floating in a pond surrounded by lily pads. Unfortunately since I live in Florida, most bodies of water likely to house water lilies, are equally likely to house alligators or worse yet, (for me anyway) large snakes. One day while riding my bike, by sheer accident, I stumbled upon the perfect pond for my vision- urban enough to weed out the snakes and alligators and over-grown enough to hide the fact that it is in downtown Miami.
I have to admit, my model did not look all too thrilled when it came time to step into the dingy, urban, shallow pond. However, being both professional and a good sport, he went for it. Later we marveled at the things one is willing to do in the name of art.
