"When we do not trouble ourselves about whether or not something is a work of art, if we just act in each moment with composure and mindfulness, each minute of our life is a work of art."      Thich Nhat Hahn 

Ohi'a Tree, Waimea Canyon in Hawaii 

This photograph was taken with an old  1950 plastic camera (Diana) and plastic lens on color
film which gave the photograph a surreal  look.  I tried to capture what I felt while standing at
the edge of this vast and arid canyon during early afternoon.  I had just finished taking
some black and white photos using a Hasselblad camera when I thought about the beautiful
rich colors.  The sun was slowly piercing the clouds with a shaft of light I had never seen
before while the ground had a bright red, orange color as a result of the volcanic clay soil.
 As soon as I took the photo, the sky went dark.
