Because I am a trained biologist I hesitate to admit that I don’t enjoy being wet. I don’t enjoy being dirty. I am not enamored of things that bite, and I blister if the word Urushoil is even mentioned. When I was a kid, I fancied myself an underwater photographer and remember that I always remained clean, cool, and bug free when in the field with the camera. Years later I find myself engaged, photographically, in an alternate ecosystem. One which is, more often than not, warm, humid, buggy, and scattered with debris. In an effort to make me more comfortable while scrabbling around so many messy venues she presented me with drop cloth. I believe I put it to good use the other day when contemplating Starflower.
