“The wild dolphins would usually interact, play, jump and move in lightning speed. This couple was different. They were gracefully moving through the water, swimming inverted. They seemed totally relaxed, almost like in a state of meditation.
I am grateful to have photographed this unique moment in time and for being able to share one of the most memorable experiences from my time photographing these sentient beings.
In Greek mythology, Pasithea, was one of the Charities (Graces), and the personification of relaxation, meditation.
The Charites are usually said to be the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome, but Pasithea’s parentage is given (by the poet Nonnus) as Hera and Dionysus She was married to Hypnos, the god of sleep.
Swimming with the wild dolphins was a wonderful and magical experience that touched the very core of my soul. I feel utterly privileged to have experienced these magnificent marine mammals in their own home, on their own terms and to share the mutual joy of being together in the crystal clear, warm waters off the coast of Bahamas.
