This is not Hawaii. Just a random beach. But, oh – the batteries that once got recharged here! I love the beach.
Aloha! I read this this morning over coffee,
“The batteries that keep my cameras working might as well die in the darkness of my camera bag if my personal batteries are not constantly recharged by the direct encounters with the natural world that first gave me the burning desire to interpret that experience in photographs.”
Galen Rowell, The Inner Game of Outdoor Photography.
I have nothing to add, except that this is a book well worth reading.
It’s Monday and I am now roughing it at the Hyatt Regency in Maui in preparation for the Maui Photo Festival. I’m hoping to do some actual relaxing and not planning to do much photography but I may find my personal batteries charge faster than I expect, in which case I’ll drop you a postcard and let you know how things are going. Otherwise, you can find me on the beach with Galen Rowell and something cold and wet to drink.
