“The relationship between water and light has fascinated me since i was a child. I would put my arms around my mother’s shoulders and she would glide underwater. I can still see the beams of light bending and shimmering.
As time went on I developed a close relationship with the pacific, spending my mornings and afternoons and any free time at all there.
The ocean has taught me many life long lessons. Two of them enabled me to make this image, Patience and Respect.”—Ray
