Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Lost World



Rappel into deep
Mossy chambers of Lost World
Glow worm stars twinkle

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  7. Thank you. It is really cool as you rappel down through the layers you are looking at a time capsule.

  8. Yet again, U have paired a fine photo with a fine haiku to create something that is even more than the sum of its parts. The exposure copes with the extremely contrasty lighting, bringing out the faint glow from the worms near the bottom w/o being utterly washed out by the sunshine near the top. Willing to reveal how many tries it took?

  9. Thank you again for your kind words. I honestly don’t remember how many I took. This is the only one I kept. It took this trip in 2006 so it has been a while. I did shop the foreground in to lighten it up due to the severe contrast. The ‘ol digital dodge and burn. While you can still see the starting platform up at the top of the photo, I did have to sacrifice some of its clarity in the process.
