People ask me:
why do I photograph open water swimmers?

Because they're magnificent!

Not just when they reach... pull... and glide
as effortlessly as a shadow from a scudding cloud...

...but when they rise up out of the froth 
like a breaching whale
or the periscope of a submarine-- 
to sight the course ahead.


I took this photo at the 2015 Title 9 Women Only Sprint Triathlon in Hopkinton, MA

(Yes, I was swimming at the time.  
Just an arm's length away from this swimmer.)


Thanks, Max Performance, 
for putting on this great race!


And guess what?

The 2017 Title 9 Women Only Sprint Triathlon is sold out--
(so if you are not already registered, you can't compete)...

but you can come to Hopkinton and cheer for these terrific athletes!


The weather will be sunny and cool!
The water will be filled with fantastic swimmers--
and the road with speedy cyclists and runners...

Hope to see you there!

Open Water Swimming can be a lot like bumper cars!


Of course the lake is wide...
but there's only one narrow path to the next buoy...
...and every swimmer reaches and pulls to glide through that slippery lane!


I took this photo at the 2015 Sharon Triathlon in Sharon, MA.

(Yes, I was swimming at the time.  
Just an arm's length away from this swimmer.)


Thanks, Max Performance, 
for putting on this great race!


And guess what?

The 2017  Sharon Triathlon is Sunday, August 13 in Sharon, MA.


The weather will be warm!

The water will be cool!

Hope to see you there!

Don't you love to swim?  I know SHE does!


I took this photo last year 
at the Land Shark Swim in Salem, MA!

(Yes, I was swimming at the time.  
Just an arm's length away from this swimmer.)

Thanks, B&S Event Management
for putting on this great race!

And guess what?

The third annual Land Shark Swim 
is tomorrow 
(Saturday, June 10) in Amesbury MA.

The day will be hot!

The water will be cool!

Hope to see you there!
