And as I sit here mulling through images and plotting and planning our new adventure to someplace amazing… I realize these are my last images from the fest. All of a sudden my shoulders feel heavier, my posture gets worse and the feeling of loss hits … i really need to shoot again soon.
@meluxine @vassanta and @carlotta get the last words….
Line of Beauty
In 2014-15 I had a 40 year retrospective at the Biggs Museum of American Art, curated by Ryan Grover. He entitled the exhibit “The Line of Beauty”. It is based upon William Hogarth’s writings from 1753 where he discusses his aesthetic concept of the line of beauty. According to this theory, S-shaped curved lines signify liveliness and activity and excite the attention of the viewer as contrasted with straight lines, parallel lines, or right-angled intersecting lines, which signify stasis, death, or inanimate objects. This is a classic example thanks to Carlotta.
@vassanta and I found the perfect prop wandering around in the jungle… fun.

@brooke and I went over to another spot after shooting with the trees and started making these images. but a woman started screaming at us so we had to stop and end our shoot. Drogon must have sensed our peril as he showed us his shadow in the water. good dragon. (it was only a frigate bird but we can pretend).
Brooke and the flayed tree
YES! I can’t help being a Game of Thrones geek. the visions in the series stick in my head and I see stuff making me think of all the symbolism of the show in nature. I’m guilty. @brooke was posing with another tree (the first two images) and I decided to take a break for a minute and have a look around and saw Bolton Banners in the trees. If you don’t watch or read the books I have no comment. lol
There were signs offering reward money to anyone who sees anyone clear cutting these trees in Kauai. Sad that anyone would chop them down. STOP IT. Even though they made for good images, it’s disturbing.
The other way…
I always like to check out the opposite way in which other hikers appear to be headed. @anneduffy and I decided to do that instead of risk a long hike that would be worthless due to the amount of people we saw going one way. The other way was better. Life lessons 101.
Hawaii is so blessed to be without poisonous things. No fear of being in the water looking for alligators or crocs or snakes. Normally we have to look out for things that will kill you plus the occassional hiker or tourist. It was lovely to only have to worry about one thing. 😉
