Beautiful Waves Inspire Paul To Endure Heart Valve Surgery

Lately, a wonderful email is going around the Internet about the wave photography of Clark Little, a Hawaiian photographer and surfer. Each time I see the email, I am excited to click on it. And, each time, I end up sighing, “Wowwwwwwwwwwww”, as I scroll through the magical pictures.

Earlier today, I received this exact email from Paul Kiminski, a heart valve surgery patient, who wrote, “Seeing these photos are one reason to stay around – endure the surgery – and enjoy the beauty one more day.”

That said, I was inspired to post this blog hoping Paul’s message resonates with some, if not, all of us.

Without further ado, here are more amazing photos by Clark Little…

Now that’s what I call a shore-break…

Pretty top-heavy and powerful…

I would call this one, “Clay Break”… Do you see the palm trees in the background?

It looks like Clark Little, the photographer, is standing up inside the wave on this one… Amazing!

Wow… Can you imagine what Clark had to experience after snapping this picture? Ouch!

This could be my favorite. Do you see the sun setting inside the wave?

Talk about a sandy, water wall!

I’m inspired to do something, anything after that one.

So clean, simple and beautiful.

Clark Little – The Photographer

Again, thanks to Paul and Sam for forwarding this email to me. I’m thrilled to be able to share it with our community.

Keep on tickin!
