Wayne is my artist friend who lost his heart and soul to India and the ways of old. His art is rather bizzare and some may consider it evil. When he first sent me a link to his work and told me he was a photographer I was excited to share ideas on photography and my travels. I learned quickly that he did not have a camera (digital) and that he did not take the kinds of photographs I took. Wayne makes his own cameras using the most intricate designs that include human parts, precious stones and metals(www.boyofblue.com) and he even sent me alink to his myspace profile (www.myspace.com/boyofblue), some of the images look terrifying. The man himself is so calm and intelligent it is hard to see him relating to his work.
The Santa Catalina Mountains popularly referred to as the Catalina Mountains are located in Northeast Tucson, it is most prominent in Tucson. On a clear day in Tucson, the sun hitting against the mountains produces a sight like you have never seen before. The highest pont of the Catalinas is a little over 9,000 ft. Wayne and I, hiked the area on the Babad Do'ag trail which gave us the opportunity to see greater Tucson from up high.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain.
