I made good progress on several projects yesterday afternoon. I was struck by this image in the early morning light. I just had to try and capture it.

Ah yes, the old shadow test. You would think I would remember that considering that Im such a big fan of the low key photos. Have a happy new year Conga and I hope Pedro finds his way to the tiki bar. I'm having trouble finding one in my part of the world as well. This Olmec shot glass is the closest thing I have to a tiki mug. I will raise a glass to you and Pedro this evening.

And to you as well Big T. I don't believe I will be up as early tomorrow morn!

Nice.
Good detail.
You lost the shape of the log.
That's good.

Wow amate...that is a really great carve.

I really like your Ku's but this is certainly a nice change of pace. Good job.

Thanks Will. Always nice to hear your encouragement.

Ditto Nix. I seem to be stuck in a rut on several different styles. While carving a particular style, I'll get a new idea and want to try my hand at the little variation and start a new one.

I like this piece a lot. It's got such good harmony, I hope that makes sense. You are a good photographer as well.
