Walking on Water

Photo taken by contributor Ty Fitzgerald, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II. Ty has a fondness for Lo-fi and Lux filters because they intensify shadows, highlights and colors. Such photos visually represent the way he sees the world, a little brighter and darker than he imagines those without bipolar disorder see the world.

About this photo: “This photo was taken in New Smyrna Beach, FL at sunset. A father and son were fishing and I managed to get a shot with just the son in it. The tide was coming in and there was water pooling all around him. When I dropped to the sand to take the shot, it looked like he was walking on water. I like this shot a lot because it has that “decisive moment” that Henri Cartier-Bresson described, where just a split second sooner or later, it would not have worked. I like to take photos of people when they are not aware of me. I like when I capture some emotion or moment that is not shiny, with big smiles and bright eyes.”

  1. Great photo! Love seeing the world from another persons perspective since no one sees the world the same.

    P.S if you get in touch with Tye tell him to follow my blog I am a mental health therapist that talk about all types of exestential, holistic healing arts, and other psychological issues/remedies our world thrusts on us.

    Great photography and perspective! The title for your photo “Walking On Water” is brilliant! Thank you, for sharing it online.

    The black and white highlights your titled theme. Best black and white photo, I’ve ever seen. You must be a Pro. It shows!


  3. One of the things that I find so compelling about this shot is how the profile of the subject aligns perfectly with the fishing pole. That is the “decisive moment”.

    I think this is a beautiful photo and wanted to share it with all of you tonight! Just as I believe music moves our life I think photography illuminates our lives. Memories are always stored in our minds and hearts, music and photographs help us share and explain those ‘feelings’ to others.

    This photographer talks about the “decisive moment,” and they are right …… a split second difference in time and the photo would have been different. Just think on that with your life and make every moment count xox
