I was a bit stumped for today’s prompt (“renew”). I knew I wanted it to be something water-related. I always feel renewed after some time in the water. Then I remembered this old photo my uncle’s girlfriend took of me jumping off Maunawili Falls. It’s an iPhone photo, and the quality is terrible for some reason. But it ended up looking really cool in a trippy-bokeh sort of way. This is how it came out, with no editing or anything:
You can barely see me jumping. If I could describe the mood of this particular hike that day, this picture would describe it perfectly. It was my hardest semester in law school, I was in the middle of writing my Second Year Seminar paper, but I found time to hike through a rainforest and jump off a waterfall. Renewal.
