this is what happens when you try to walk around an object. luckily something in our brains compensates and pulls the image together. otherwise you might trip. today i scooped dirt from a hillside to fill pig holes in the citrus orchard. i mowed in between dumping three full loads and then put the water barrel ballast back in the bucket so i could finish cutting the remaining knee-high grass. a helicopter tracked the line of kalepa gulch pretty low so i waved to it. i always wave to planes, trains, and ships if there's the least chance someone aboard might see me. strangers in the night. learning to operate and photograph a tractor has been one of the greatest pleasures of my year or so out here in the wilds of kaupo, maui.
