No, I am not levitating, dangling off a building or doing a weird sort of handstand.
This photo was taken by freediver Ma Leung during a pool training session two weeks ago with Hong Kong Freediving Association. I am completing a three-minute static breath-hold which is my personal best to date.
I didn’t notice the photographer taking this picture as I was trying to stay calm and focused, and had my eyes closed. Freediving offers amazing creativity potential for photography, as this photo demonstrates. In this case, the pool is actually a four-metre-deep diving pool, which explains the sense of space in the shot. Thanks Ma Leung for giving me permission to publish it.
