The Beauty of a Morning wave
This is a photograph of a wave breaking beneath the brilliant sunset sky, taken in New York on September 11, 2016. 15 years prior, on that fateful day, I spent my morning skipping my first college class to go to surf and think about how the world was going to change from the perspective of a 17 year old. Little did I know, I'd be along that same stretch of beach at age 33 documenting the anniversary and the waves 15 years later.
