@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).
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.
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. 😉
I still struggle to “see” the nude in the landscape, but luckily I’ve been blessed with working with all these amazing models, and seeing all the amazing photographer’s works… maybe one day I’ll get it. 🙂
always wanted to write her name that way. when christian and i were finished shooting we climbed a big hill in my truck – trucks are awesome – up in a residential area until the road ended with a horse staring at us. literally. i spied these massive leaves and decided i needed one. i got the smallest one i could and it still stuck out a bit from the bed of the truck. it must have been about 10 ft. long. couldn’t have done that in a car. thanks truck. and @meluxine posed brilliantly with it. here are a few.
