I was visiting an artists in last afternoon. On one of her many tables she had the bowl of Crystals. At first I thought they were stone crystals but she said no, they were made of salt. The afternoon light was penetrating them and they glowed.

The children were told to put on plastic gloves to help wash the fabric used for the Cyanotype technique by artist Ya Chu Kang. To do the Cyanotype she had the children put their hands on the material along with their favorite toys. Once the material is exposed to the sun it turns blue. The material that was protected by the children’s hands or toys remained white. Her project was part of the Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project in Taiwan.

This photo was taken at Cheng Long Taiwan. One of the artists, Ya Chu Kang had tried to walked out to her art work and found it rough going. She decided that the frog suit would work better.
I think this photo contrasts nicely with my previously upload one with the clean hands and red finger nails.

My wife is teaching a paper making class at Santa Rosa Junior College. One of the students formed her wet paper into the tree bark. It was drying and coming off the tree. It makes a beautiful relief sculptural paper. The paper is abaca from the Philippines.

I seem to be looking back on photos that I did a number of years ago. This could be because I’m trying to organize them into categories. This photo was taken on the street in Arusha Tanzania. It seems to have a blend of old and new, bland to bright colors and lots of stories.
