I love photographs as you can capture a specific moment in time in one single snapshot. But there’s something special about capturing memories on film. You can roll it back and re-live the whole experience, however many times you wish. You can see things from a different view and appreciate those magical few seconds, when you’re drifting alongside a 10-metre long shark, from a perspective other than your own.
We snorkelled with Whale Sharks in Oslob, a sleepy town on Cebu Island in the Philippines, just over 3 months ago. I’ve tried over and over to put this experience to words, however I can never find the right words to do it justice. So, I made this video.
It still takes me back every time I watch this through, and only now, when our life here is so different to what it was for those few short months, do I truly value and treasure the moments like this.
