As some of you may know, I'm collaborating with Eric H. Roth on writing an English as a Second Language (ESL) book.
Earlier this year Eric published Compelling American Conversations.
For this book Eric asked if he could use one of my sports photographs to accompany the chapter about "Playing and Watching Sports." I was delighted and honored.
I reviewed my library of photos and decided to submit a photo of Heather Shenkman. I took this photo of Heather at the Culver City Municipal Pool in Culver City, California. She was raising money by swimming laps at the annual Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge.
Below is the photograph of Heather that was published in Compelling American Conversations. Observe Heather's beautiful form, especially the high elbow and finger tips that gracefully glides over the water.
Dr. Shenkman is known as the "Vegan Heart Doc.," and has completed numerous marathons, Ironman triathlon events and even an ultramarathon (50K.)
