This image was taken in Hawaii back in 2006, after I just bought my first digital camera. I knew at the time, it was a special image because it was my first abstraction in the landscape. I am not sure I could have ever made it with a film camera but being able to see it immediately on the back of the digital camera seemed to be a game changer. I lived with this image for four years before I began to pursue abstractions as a direction when I got an iPhone. This magical place helped me see in a new way and I feel really grateful for that.
