Default Is this Swimust ?

As I to would like to swim like Shingi I naturally follow the posts of Swimust, although they are really much too advanced for me to understand.
Last night reviewing some photos I took last year at Herculaneum near Pompeii I came across what I think may be a 'Swimust' in transition from donkey to dolphin, although I'm not qualified to know if this is classic TI or Shingi style. Any thoughts?
Stuart :)

haha surrounded by four dolphins, my natural habitat :)
1) No, you arent qualified to know what style is that.
2) I also don't know what I am talking about but I am learning

some touch with real life wont hurt me that much so thanks all for the reality "shock" :)

Swimust, no harm intended. The friend I was with, when I took the photo, said it looked like the way I swim so you can see the mess I'm in - much to much hip rotation!

Nah, can't be swimust, this donkey decided to share a video of himself swimming. Another reason it can't be swimust, is because it is lifting it's head to breathe. We know that swimust, being a desciple of the Shinji method, might tilt his head slightly forward between breaths but would never lift his head. Oh we'll, back to the drawing board.

But this may be the before picture ... that is before he found Shinji. Swimust's first days of his TI life. His back is somewhat in good form ! And he has made it to an OW swim. He was already thinking outside the box!! ;-)

Nah, couldn't be a before picture, even though Shinji's hips are high, no before picture would have an "ass" sticking that far out of the water.

Notice how the water is hardly disturbed as he maintains a laser-like head-spine alignment....excellent balance and comfort in the water. This picture may have been snapped just as he picks his head up briefly to sight his course....I understand this is acceptable when swimming in OW.
