Float by IMustBeDead Float by IMustBeDead
- Framed Art Prints

So I've had the pieces to make this photo for about six months. I was kind of saving it for myself for when someone made me feel a bit floaty.

Over time though I figured out I really don't want that at this point in time, and am fine being single and doing what I do. Unless someone comes and side swipes me, I won't be floating anytime soon.

Thason on the other hand has a girlfriend these days, and it's good to see him settle down with a nice girl. About the best thing that could happen to him really.

But like I said, I had this idea for a really really long time, and I kept telling certain couples I would use it for them, but never ended up doing it. I guess I kind of felt like the idea was special, and so the subject had to actually be floating together so to say. I'm that way with a lot of my photos, and I know you guys may enjoy my conceptual stuff, but I hope you understand sometimes how much thought and care I put into some of them. I hope you know that I like to make photos that mean something to myself and to others, and that I spend a lot of effort to make sure I say something with my images.

Anyhow,

Hope if you are floating or not you enjoy the photo.

If you are floating, good luck staying up there.

If you are not, join the club!
