I Took Photos!

The title is a bit mis-leading, I didn’t personally take these photos that I’m about to share with you, they’re from Josh Monaghan’s fabulous I TOOK PHOTOS BLOG. No relation to itookphotos, which is also a great site but the slick navigation slows me down – I just want to scroll! Sometimes simple is better. No, simple is always better. If you know of other great photo blogs, not named “i took photos” hit me! And then tell me about the photo blogs! Hiyoooo.

  • Jessie Cacciola

    love the color tone of the first. thanks for the find.

  • That last picture really gives me the creeps.

  • hahah me TOO – my worst fear, deep ocean water

  • Especially since you can’t see the horizon. Heebie jeebs!

  • Really.. REALLY love the last pic..

    makes me feel like im swimming in the ocean. nice.

  • cat

    the last one is amazing. but what do you mean can’t see the horizon? isn’t the horizon where the water meets the sky?

    • well the horizon would be where the vanishing point is and the wave is above that, i know what she’s saying
