The world feels much bigger when it is just you and an endless flow of water. I wanted to capture this feeling through the eyes of Tommy, a passionate fisherman who often comes out to this pond, rain or shine. To him, it doesn’t matter whether a fish is caught, but instead, if he is able to experience nature and watch the sun set below the trees with good friends. He lives by a Henry David Thoreau quote, which famously says “Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not the fish they are after.”
