Golden Falls - Queen's Bath, Kauai, Hawaii

Via Flickr:
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I'm writing an app for apple and Android devices about photographing the California coast! I'll be done in a couple of months.

I have many new photos of Kauai to share. For this, I had to bail out several times when bigger waves would strike. This place could be extremely dangerous during the winter and I DO NOT suggest you try this during big surf!!!

---------------------------------------------------------
Settings etc.:
---------------------------------------------------------

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 17-40L @ 22
(wide to capture more of the sky and the top of the falls)
0.3-second exposure @ F13
ISO 160
2-0.9 (3-stop) Lee soft edge neutral density graduated filters
Lee foundation kit filter holder (3-slots)
Lee adapter ring to fit my 77mm lens to the holder
No polarizer
Small Slik Sprint mini II tripod with Manfrotto 322RC2 pistol grip ball head

---------------------------------------------------------
The Story:
---------------------------------------------------------

From a trail near the Princeville hotel, you gain access to some incredible coastal scenery including a large lava swimming pool called "Queen's Bath" but on this evening I wanted to capture these falls as they enter the ocean as they are lit by the last rays of the sun. The falls do not show up well in photographs unless the golden sun is striking them during the summer. I had to get into a small area under a lava ledge and stand on extramely slippery rounded rock at low tide to get this view. The best time to shoot this (because of the angle of the sun hittin gthe water) is probably the summer.


---------------------------------------------------------
Resources:
---------------------------------------------------------

Google Earth
earth.google.com/

Simply the best way to scout out locations that there is. You can see sun angles and pre-visualize light under lots of different conditions. Sometimes you can actually pre-compose your shots! This has saved me many thousands of vertical feet of climbing by avoiding spots with blocked views etc.

Chase Alias' :)(: Bugchaser, Repetition is Unavoidable, Selected Works for Exhibit at the Contemporary Art Fair NYC 2011


Via Flickr:
Chase Alias' :)(: Bugchaser, Repetition is Unavoidable

All love is self-love. All interpretation is self-interpretation. The value of "interpretation" is that through it, one might expose reality, or explain oneself. But interpretation is also reality, and it's practice is likewise an event. Reinterpreting a very common truth is one of the pleasures of our game. It is neccessary to spare no pains in interpreting, for no matter how we change, we are all forever expounding on a basic truth. No matter whether or not we are willing, repetition is unavoidable. -Ai WeiWei

{The following is an excerpt from a fictional social awareness blog-cast called "Bugchaser". The characters are not representational of actual events, but could be. Please remember to practice safe sex.}

When Chase Alias first Posted this Social Commentary Artwork "Bug Chaser" He Would Have Never Imagined That He would Become the Target of an Evil Vindictive Bug Chase!

But who is to blame. Chase Alias has found himself in an awful position this morning. He has been in a loving monogamous relationship of over a year. At the beginning of the relationship both partners did the responsible thing or so he thought/ They both went to the same doctor and supposedly both had HIV tests.

Chase Alias' test came back negative and that was great. His partners came back not detected and Chase was told by the doctor that meant negative so he took that as the truth. Recently his partner had a new test. Again it came back not detected but Chase was weary this time and questioned it. The test not only said not detected it said .2 within range. Turns out both test his partner had were viral load tests and the doctor knew this. It also turns out that Chase' partner has about 20 years of nto detected viral load tests and he says "No one ever told him he was positive."

Who is Chase supposed to believe? What should he do? This is a cry for help!!!!!!!!! :():

Chase Alias' :)(: A Deeper Meaning, Selected Works for Exhibit at the Contemporary Art Fair NYC 2011

Via Flickr:
Actions cannot be accomplished with imagination. Actions can only be accomplished with actions. Interpretations or understanding of behavior are merely interpretation and understanding; they do not have a deeper meaning. "Action" and "nonaction" is the same. With regard to certain problems, we have few choices. -Ai WeiWei

Occupy wall street 2072

Despite the fact that photographs appear to have originated in the process of documenting the object that is being photographed,  the real documentation of this so-called objectivity has a greater attraction and a dualistic nature.  It is even more unfaithful to reality,  calling our physiological feelings and fundamental means of expression into question.  -Ai WeiWei

My father suggested that I visit Guilin, apparently a charming city surrounded by world-famous landscapes. Well, in true Chinese style, the city was completely redeveloped in a bland modernist style a couple of years before I got there. Upon my return, I asked my father when he was last in Guilin. The late 1960s, he replied.

I am now somewhat more wary of his China recommendations, paying close attention to when he last visited.

With the help of the non-destructive, aftermarket firmware, CHDK, installed on my camera, I set the tripod up, and set the camera to fire off as many frames as it could, until it filled the SD card memory.

I did not know where the moon would eventually set, nor did I know if the sun would rise too soon, and thus wash everything out, as I could not reset the shutter speed, nor change any other settings once I set the program in motion.

It was pure, once in a 'blue moon' kind of luck.
