Time out in an El Paso hotel and I spent my afternoon by the pool. At one end was a waterfall which one could swim behind to view the world through a rather distorted medium. I was reminded of David Hockney's "A Bigger Splash". I wrapped the camera in a plastic bag with just the lens peering out and took the shot. The watery blend of pastel colours excited me, as if a painting had been left out in the rain to accept it's natural finishing touches.
