His photo of the hands holding water and boat inspired me to create my recreation with the tree and sun. I could not find very much information about his photo. This picture took a while to prepare I could not imagine having to do more then one of these pictures. Jerry is an awesome photographer and I would really like to get my skills from looking at his photographs.
