Maybe, my all time favorite picture

In 1999, I drove across the country with my friend, Brooke. We stopped in New Orleans and asked around about the best swamp tour. A lady in a travel kiosk directed us to a guy that didn't advertise, but she said knew more about the swamp than anyone in Louisiana.

This picture may be my favorite picture I've ever taken. For me, it does everything you want from a photograph. There's some mystery in that picture. It makes you wonder what happened the second before the shutter was released and what's going to happen the second just after it. And, because of all that, it keeps you looking at the image.
