Very Far East

Innumerable miniature screws, tendonous ribbons of circuitry, solids so clear as to not even be there, and about thirty whacks from a rubber mallet. Lens surgery was a success. Note to self and readers – wet mossy rocks combined with walking backwards whilst holding conversation can lead to undesired physical outcomes.

Sitting now in a fanatically clean room, I’m hooked into the archives machine so I figured I’d pull something up from the way back era. And so here, something I have no recollection shooting, and even less recollection seeing. Some other photos shot maybe 15 minutes previous to this are totally remembered, but… this, dear readers, is a discovery.

A bit bittersweet though. My start-of-semester plan of networking my way to Hong Kongian employment and life is dead in the water. A combination of attractive stateside options and, now that I think of it, a heavy photo habit that devours my time, led to a slow but certain dissolution of the idea.

Oh, pictured above is my first hour in Hong Kong.
