Michael Bajorek, San Diego Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement Originally from San Diego, I got to enjoy the ocean and city for about five years before moving to Kentucky.
I attended college in Kentucky, where I grew up enjoying the outdoors from the very beginning. I used to go camping all the time, and we even used to spend time jumping off of rock cliffs that were sixty to eighty feet high. However, on the occasions where I was lucky enough to vacation to any beach, I was always captivated by the epic scene of the open ocean spreading out to the horizon.
I moved back out to San Diego, and, in between surfing, I decided to work on capturing that scene's majestic beauty.
I think it is important to mention that I do not edit any fake color into any of these pictures. All of the colors present are completely natural color captured at the scene. A lot of photos now get edited so much that they seem totally computer generated. I wanted to revert to the natural color, look, and feel of the scene.
