Accidental discovery!

It all started out so simple, I got up early, jumped in my pool, swam four laps and I got this idea for a blog post: There is this empty pool in London which has really been bugging me. (Strange things bug me.) This English pool is very art deco and it is just sitting there rotting away. So I go this idea that I would create a before/after shot. I would show the pool as it is now, and then take it into Photoshop and "fill it up" with water and add a swimmer as my "after" shot.

So, lo and behold, while searching for a kid with goggles, I discovered alberich mathews on Flickr and decided to put my original post on hold till this evening or so.

Here is a link to a bunch of underwater photography by Alberich Mathews and be sure to check out page 2 of his photostream: [Link]

I think most of the photos would be better if presented upside down like the one on top but even still ost are very beautiful. Here is a direct link to the photo above: [Link]

That photo really evokes Maxfield Parrish.
