I learned to swim by jumping off the diving board and forgetting my swimmies. I can remember the feeling of sinking - not bouncing up to the surface like I normally would with my air-filled arm bands. As I opened my eyes all I could see were bubbles. I remember the feeling as they slowly went up and tickled my face. The cobalt blue of the swimming pool gleamed off the bubbles as they left my nose and floated to the surface.
With my arms out at my sides I slowly moved them back and forth, pushing my 4 year-old body to the surface.

I was reminded of that feeling when I read an article about San Fransisco artist, Eric Zener. Zener captures those moments, under the water where for a few quiet moments its just you and the bubbles.

The pictures on Coastal Living are worth a look.
