Thematic Photographic–Shooting Strangers from Afar

Snowboarder catching air this January.

The poor guy whose job it is to clean up the mess visitors leave on the beach on Antelope Island.

Mom and daughter (I’m making an assumption) headed back from the Great Salt Lake shore.

Swimmers attempting to swim in the Great Salt Lake.  This is not an easy task since the lake can be up to 3 times as salty as the ocean.  This not only makes one a lot more buoyant, but the salt can sting every orifice and cut or scratch on the body.  This can be a benefit since it can cure any infected cut or scratch.  The other problem is that the lake is 33’ deep at it’s deepest, so to get in enough water to even try real swimming, you have to walk quite a ways out.

Love that snowboarder shot.

I've never thought about trying to swim in the Great Salt Lake. I love swimming, but that might just be TOO salty for me!

Those snowboarding shots you took were awesome!

the snowboarder is having fun, much more than the guy cleaning up.

Very nice shots, Max - the lake looks good, even if it's no good for swimming.

Happy new school year!

Snowboarder shot is great! And I like the little people on that big beach. Great shots!
