Artist's Description

experiment with long exposure time
taken at silver sands beach near Mandurah
nikon d80
sigma 10-20
190sec @ f13, ISO 100

wavering above dreams and floating down the steps of time
into memories that were held
like the long slow breaths of the son of zeus
your waters lapped at the edge of an ocean
the colour faded away
and i heard the distant sounds of a voice i once knew

in your ocean we swam
deep and flowing amongst the fathoms
surfacing in the bubbles, the void dropping away deep below
this remains untouchable
you’re untouchable yet with magnetism
i feel our worlds getting closer

you sang a song, perseus find me
i’m lost, let your ocean find me

your thoughts become a future that we all know can happen
as the seconds count away
i feel the music of thought reflected through me
reaching out with sonar
feeling your way in the lull of tide

i roll over on my side again to put my arm around you
yet you are gone
the sound of waves crashing in the night
is all there is to bring me close to you now
the energy comes again encircling
and pulls me away to the otherworlds

you sang a song, perseus find me
i’m lost, let your heart find me

i’m floating yet i can see with my eyes closed
the mirror of the ocean is as solid as glass
reality plays its funny games with me
the disparity between worlds makes my heart turn inside out
do you want your dreams dangling on the end of a chain just out of reach
or your life being held under while you struggle for air to breathe
these worlds meld into blurred emotions
fluid fills my lungs
yet i continue to breathe

come again, come and reach for me
let your ocean find me
