Boathouse Studio/ Tomba-Images Lake Beulah, Wisconsin
This past Saturday , I met an old friend of mine (by old , I first met Boban in 2006 maybe 2007 at the Golden Gloves) over the years we would see each other at MMA and Boxing events. Bo as a pro fighter , Tomba as a photographer. Boben is such a gentle man but he comes up with work outs that would challenge a bear .
Once I heard about the Lake Michigan swims in January and Febuary, so it was time to meet up with once again. Here's a few images from this Saturdays "Boban swim" before heading to XFO MMA.
First a few stat's on the day ;
Water temperature : 32 to 34 degree F Air temperature : 31F w/ feel of 26 degree F
Length of time in water swimming : 16 minutes
The complete photo gallery can be viewed at
Amazingly Boban's body feels like its heating up after three or four minutes in the water, the body reacting to protect itself ...Probably thinking this is so very wrong , I'm going to die so the releasing of agents to protect itself begins ...All of his muscles expand and tighten , testostone levels go "throught the roof" ..Hyperthermia sets in when getting out of the water not while in the water.....His hands are white when first getting out of the water then quickly turning blue ...He is truely "the Man" ..He keeps getting tickets from the Chicago police and they tell him next time they catch him "they will throw him in jail". I do not believe this is a man that's easily intimidated !
Hopefully, I will have another Photo Session with Boban at the Lake before the Ice goes away and I can continue this story ..
