A Plustek scan of a very old Ektachrome 100 transparency captured in May 1982 before this photographer had a Nikon. The exact location is lost to me now, but it’s Arizona high grassland.

Two Skiffs at Leper Colony

Two Skiffs at Leper Colony

Two Skiffs at Leper Colony, South Korea, June 1994

~ view larger ~

This image was captured on my epic circumnavigation of the South Korean peninsula in an old Hyundai. I had visited the islands of Wando, Jeju-Do and U-Do in the Korean Strait and the plan was to go back to the mainland to visit the island of Adong-Do 오동도, only a hundred yards off shore from that side. Adong-do is an island of great beauty from November to the beginning of May when its very own variety of scarlet azalea trees bloom, turning the whole island scarlet.

Sorok-Do 소록도 is a nearby island of equal beauty known for its leper colony. I made a mistake and went to Sorok-Do. I do not regret this mistake because mistakes have meaning. It was meant to be. I made the capture “Boat at Sorok-Do”and have derived much pleasure in doing so.

I found this King Sago palm in South Korea. They told me it was female. Wouldn’t that make it a Queen Sago?

Uprooted – Olympic National Park

Captured on the Eastern boundary of Olympic National Park. in July 1985, the uprooted tree, bleached by the elements looked to me like the rack of a prehistoric moose or elk. I made 2 frames, one in landscape mode and the other in portrait mode. After much deliberation, landscape mode won out.
