"50 miles of weathered old bays, haunting the imagination with secrets to decode, solely through time invested." Renowned surf photographer, Mickey Smith endures through the cold, the fear, the anxiety to catch subtle glimpses of magic. If there is a way to create poetry through images, this has got to be it.

    My waters take me there , where time has stopped , where sound is storm where light has crossed the iris path... where stones cast spells where dolfins sing where birds go west and Sun is string to other world... My Waters take me there, where wind is strong where birds are silent where all the fear is dust of silence where all the magic ever known is just a clear ocean drop...... my waters take me there.... believe it - you - or not, shall meet you in the morning with ocean oldest song.

    The men in my family surf. One guy painted his apartment to look similar to the sky as you photoed here. Another taught his sons to admire the surf and respect nature. Do keep you art going. So others may ignite their imagination with the thunderous surf rushing at the coast.
