Water, one of the primary elements of nature guards its dark abyss against light and air. Whenever these two sneak in, the water mercilessly devours them. Yet its power gives in to the beauty, releasing the light and air it held captive. When a weightless beauty wrapped in light and air bubbles shines before my camera – the camera takes pictures on its own. I am just holding my breath.
