I think I know the answer to why we spend all of our time living in places that are less than perfect … for me its all about opportunity and reality. If I could afford to live on an island somewhere I am sure I would … problem is, aside from working in the service industry, there just aren’t a ton of jobs available for someone like me. The other side of it all is that if you live in paradise you most certainly have to work in paradise … to me that just sort of kills the whole thing. I guess for now I am happy with just visiting and spending some mindless days watching the sun go down. With that in mind I’ll share with you some pictures so far.
Another quick thought. My wife and I were pulling some pictures out to throw up on Flickr and we both got a bit of a kick out of the fact that out of the 215 we’ve taken so far only 30 made it. When I said that she looked at me and reminded me that was a little more than a standard roll of film a few years ago. Shoot digital, plug in the camera, let iPhoto pull them in, and instantly publish to Flickr — really amazing. And another thing, literally 30 seconds after posting the pictures I had a comment on a photo from someone I had never met. Amazing.
