Underwater Magic

My cousins Josh and Anna sent me Jason deCaires Taylor's website and directed me to his videos where you can witness underwater installations of statues that are incredibly life-like yet survive in an atmosphere where humans cannot. Watching the transformation of the statues as the natural environment envelopes them reminds me how powerful nature can be and how intrinsically we are intertwined.  I can't help but smile while watching these videos and get a little giddy as the light rays cast through the water and the colorful tropical fish swim by the familiarly posed people like birds in flight.  

Thanks to Josh and Anna for introducing me to this inspired work!
