Schvoom. Spyeeyoo. Double-bodied quadra-oar’d lasers skimming along the river. They don’t actually seem to go that fast when seen from a distance. They’re like some exotic seagull with four tiny wings at the end of sticks, slowly flapping in the waves that’re lapping.

Sprawled out in shoreline muck and garbage for a good ten minutes for this shot (and a couple others). Camera held to my upside-down head, craning towards the surface. Getting low, dodging brambles, sinking into bottle caps and dead grass. Much different than setting up the tripod in the marble lobby.

Someone won, I know not who.
