Dark Side of the Lens

My friend Mikey is Passionate about surfing with a capital "P". And like anyone with a passion, he wants to share it.  Mikey has shown me loads of surfing videos.  I think they are cool, but because I've only been surfing a few times I don't "get them" like he does.  But the other day he showed me a video that amazed me.  It educated and inspired me.  In other words, it made my hearts smile.  Dark Side of the Moon is a poetic account of why surf photographer, Mickey Smith, loves what he does.  This video seriously gives me goosebumps every time I watch it.  I could just look up the "lyrics," but I love that each time I watch it I find a new piece that is poignant and magical.
