|Photograph by Shannon Finney, Pran Buri, Thailand, 2008|
During these hot August days, when the heat is unrelenting and oppressive,
it's nice to think of days spent on a beach, enjoying cool ocean breezes.
This is one of my favorite photographs. I shot it on location in Pran Buri,
about two and a half hours drive from Bangkok, Thailand. I remember
the quiet - just the water lapping up to the shore and the whisper of
the breeze through the gauze of the curtains separating the room from
the terrace. It was that whisper I wanted to capture, to freeze that
sound, or at least the idea of that sound.
