WHITE RIM NO. 3 (I'M OKAY, YOU'RE OKAY)
The source material for this piece comes from a high water trip on the Green River with my son, Oscar (who was seven at the time). We had been hanging in a rarefied patch of noontime shade, taking photos, eating lunch, and laughing. We embarked in our inflatable kayak and I got back to taking photos on the fly, focusing entirely on the task at hand. Then, Oscar slipped out of the craft without a peep. Until he peeped! downstream quite a ways. He didn't panic, as he had been coached, and we dragged his wet muskrat self back into the boat and laughed, laughed, laughed. As we were settling back into calm, the current took us near this wall, baking in the June sun.
