adventures atop the southern hemisphere’s largest shield volcano caldera




i just had a moment.  i was looking at this picture….

and i decided to get some insight, as even my very limited knowledge of the zone in which we were in, hinted at it’s environmental importance.  I was familiar with the volcano, the Gondwana Rainforest and the zone’s biodiversity- thanks to the post-volcano fertility and the obviously rich landscape but I’m no expert, infact i quickly realised i could never have imagined the fucking immensity of this location.  How was I to know I was standing in a Rainforest that dates back to when there were only 2 continents, somewhere in the range of 250-500 million years ago….

So i kept reading with a penchant for specificity and as I made my knowledge more finite i realised, once again, probably for the too many times to admit, that I live in paradise.. not only that but there is a rainforest, beginning only 1.5 hours from my city that i could easily spend a lifetime in.

fuck all this ethical turbulence relating to my photography, the reason i started this and fell head over heels was the lack of ethics, the power to express and document the things i enjoy, love and value.   my ethos of casj does not have time for wigging because what i love about photography is the incentive to explore, worrying about how my clients are expressing my work is only going to do me harm, both emotionally and professionally.

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
