Shot on Ektachrome and cross processed. I took it off the deck of a ferry on our way to Victoria. I had exposed for him up in the bright sky but then suddenly he dipped downward and as I panned with him he passed in front of the shadow cast by the boat. That's when I exposed. I think this is my favorite photo but I can't fully explain it's wild look. But I promise you - no photoshop! :)
