A couple weeks ago my partner @jamiedewolf and I ventured half way around the world to Srinagar, and decided while we were there we had to try and take mermaid photos in the famed Dal Lake. Here's the first, aboard the shikara wooden boat with the Himalayas in the background!⠀ ⠀ The story behind these photos is way crazier than the image could ever convey. They were sooooo close to not happening. The region is insanely gorgeous but there's a lot of tension in Kashmir right now, so we were quite wary the entire time we were there. We almost scrapped the idea but then by luck found an awesome guide, and a boatman who was willing to take us out. Almost all of the women there cover up from ankle to neck even in the blazing heat of summer, and don't swim. We didn't wan't to cause a stir, so we rowed out to a remote part of the lake to be able to capture these. So many thanks to everyone who made these happen <3⠀ ⠀ #kashmir #srinagar #himalayas #shikara #dallake #lilies #mer#mermaidelilies #mermaid #realmermaid #mermaidtail #mermaidlife #thelittlemermaid #mermaidsofinstagram #iamamermaid #professionalmermaid #mer#mermaidiara #transformation #challengeyourself #mermaidiara #iaramandyn @gyawuninsta @captivatingkashmirofficial @kashmirloversofficial @kashmirthroughmylens @jktourismofficial

Beauty fills heart with awe and sombreness. This veneration is just because beauty is the mirror of your heart and the melancholy is due to temporality of ourselves and the separation from it. Beauty is melancholic, if it is not, it is an illusion. Question everything that is made beautiful as John Keats says, "Beauty is Truth; Truth Beauty, Ye know on earth; all ye need to know." _Zahid F.
