here's what i'm thinking

i've been wanting to incorporate text with these images. i think written words from the people i'm photographing will enhance the story i'm telling with the pictures, and make the project has a whole more personal and hopefully, intriguing to people in and out of the surf world. i've asked each woman to answer a few questions - andrea was the first to get hers back to me (thanks andrea!!!).

above is how i envision it will look in my published book. i think for my website, i'll put the text underneath the images, but we'll see as i start to collect more. this is only the beginning....

Looks good Liz! I think people will respond well to the addition of text, the handwriting makes it that much more personal. I can't wait for this on my coffee table!

definitely love the text. i think it will be a great element and make the book more accessible to the general public.
