No, I haven't forgotten how to write right. The words are the conclusion of a post I wrote just over two years ago; the image is based on a recent photo of rapids in a small gorge in the Pohangina River. I don't know how to label this. It's not a photo; "image" is too wishy-washy; "artwork" too pretentious. Moreover, it probably benefits from a little explanation, even if the explanation's indirect (and regarding that, I'd encourage you to read Dave's post at via Negativa — a typically thought-provoking discussion about artists' statements and other challenging ideas like the concept of "nature porn"). I suspect "play" and "experiment" are more accurate descriptions.
I'm heading away again, this afternoon, down to the South Island, to meet up with the rest of my family; the first time we'll all have been together for a very long time. Longer blog posts, with more to say, will follow, although perhaps not just in the next few days. But, perhaps this — whatever it is — says what needs to be said, right now.
