Water Lily

January editorials may have not rocked my world, but this shoot did...

I am lost for words. These are screenshots of the gallery of fresh2o , a water charity created to raise awareness over the need for fresh water all over the planet. They have done shoots with other celebrities too (Kiera Knightley), but these ones particularly impressed me.

They were all shot by photographer Candice, a pioneer of the underwater portrait.
Back when I used to live in London, i'd bump into her all the time in Queensway, going to the local bowling/skating centre with her friends, other 16-year-olds I would not normally notice. To be honest, if she was not as remarkably tall, I may not have noticed her either. Seeing her in this shoot though, I am totally pursuaded she is a supermodel and a pro. You have no idea how hard it was creating those perfect images. Actually, you can see it here. On the other hand, fresh2o has done such a great job in catching my attention. I hope along with awareness they manage to raise the money too for their good cause.

The first picture is really magical!
And yes, I can imagine how hard it must have been, achieving the perfect pose while holding your breath. Scary!

These are gorgeous. I would love to do a shoot under water one day.

I really like Lilly Cole. She is kind of like a little doll.
