Kiritimati in the morning…

fly fishers chasing bonefish & trevally walk to the boats to meet their guides and head out to the flats… A nice recollection, of late, when Winter keeps blowing Springtime into the distance.

Christmas Island (Kiritimati)

on the approach, flying in over the flats. This was from a trip in 2009, but I still marvel at the surreal experience on this tropical island.

Walking into the sunrise…

Early morning on Christmas Island (Kiritimati) headed into the rising sun and the flats boats/guides to chase Bonefish and Trevally.

Perceptions…….

Is there a rainbow or isn’t there? Perhaps a better frame of mind, right now, is that something unique is there and in its totality it is all beautiful.

A cynic’s view….

“…under all the parade of human effort and noise, today is like yesterday, and tomorrow will be like today; that existence is a wheel of recurring patterns from which no one escapes; that all anybody does in this life is live for a while and then die for good, without finding out much; and that therefore the idea is to take things easy and enjoy the passing time under the sun…”   

Herman Wouk, Don’t Stop the Carnival

The sameness, the bland acceptance would be mind numbing. Perhaps it’s the mental state to enter into, in order to endure. But, the craziness of life, of discoveries, falling in love, adventures toward the unknown, the mind alert and creative does not, cannot, abide by such cynicism. We must see ourselves as vital, alive and seeking something beyond the self imposed walls of sameness. Don’t you think……..?

Photography & Travel: Name This Flower

photography-flowers-tropical-travel-swittersbOne of the few splashes of color during a trip to Kiritimati (Christmas Island), I could never quite identify this flowering tree/shrub. I couldn’t find out if it is native or introduced to the London, Kiritimati locale.
