I love going through the images following a shoot - selecting the 'keepers' and discarding the 'not so good'. Actually, I never completely delete the 'not so good' as you never know what gems you might find amongst them upon further review.
Which brings me to the following image.
This wasn't on my keeper list originally, but there was something about this image that 'spoke to me' - something about the elements of water crashing, the Nike mark on the runners, the hand on the head - it captured something that spoke to me about those years as a teenager, where we sometimes feel so alone in this big crazy world as we embark on that road to adulthood.
It doesn't reflect the moment at all (we were having a lot of fun!) - but I think it demonstrates the power of an image, to capture something completely different when we use our imagination.
It's become one of my favourites from this shoot.
