The Lotus Pickers
Nanjing, China

This shot is just to provide some context for the dying lotus plant images I shot a lot of at Xuanwu Lake in downtown Nanjing.

Bozeman, Montana

Salvador Dali was a sculptor in addition to a painter. I don’t believe I was aware of that until I came across some of his sculptures in Beijing a couple of years ago. This one (created in the 1970s) recently donated to the National Museum of Art looks like it could have been born of fire in Yellowstone National Park.
