amazing video - Dark Side of the Lens

This is not my video essay, although I wish I could accomplish something of this caliber.

I feel a lot when I watch this, maybe it is the mood that all the visuals, music, great voice and excellent writing create, or it could be that I have always wanted to get into the water with a camera.

The biggest thing that hits me is at 2:50:
“I want to see wave riding documented the way I see it in my head, and the way I feel it in the sea. It is a strange set of skills to begin to acquire, and only achievable from time spent riding waves; all sorts of wave on all sorts of crafts, means more time learning out in the water.”

He is driven by passion, and that passion built off of experience, experiences he is willing to work through the cold to find it…in fact he hopes to work at it the rest of his life.

What is my passion?
