Photo is of me, August Smith, taken by Steven Michael Holmes.

This photo was taken on the morning of August 7th at Moon Lake in Iron Mountain, Michigan. I was travelling with a number of other artists through Michigan, working on collaborative art projects and a documentary.

The night before this photo was taken, Steve and I watched a mysterious light on the horizon flash strange colors at irregular intervals. After this photo was taken I saw a catfish.
