Hear Me Now
Albatross have something like two dozen different dance moves--and that's just the ones we can discern with our human eyes. There's the sky point, head shake, armpit sniff, and bill dueling, to name a few of the obvious ones. Both genders take part in the courtship dance. Both court for two to three years before selecting the right and perfect mate. Here, a prospector opens wide in mid-clack. I've heard some people compare the sound of this rapid-fire effort to castanets. However, I wonder whether the sound inspired the creation of an Hawaiian hula implement called `ili `ili, in which the dancer holds a pair of water-worn lava stones in each hand and strikes them together in a staccato rhythm. Oh, what I would give to witness a mōlī-inspired hula!
- Photography on metal
- Satin finish/minimal glare.
- Ready to hang.
- The 12x12-inch and 8x8-inch metal prints come with 1/8-inch rounded corners and float 1/2″ off the wall when hung.
- The 4x4-inch metal prints come with square corners and a magnetic back.
A little about the metal: The image is infused directly into specially coated sheets of aluminum, adding a magical luminescence to the image. Professional lab testing shows image stability of the metal print is two to four times that of traditional silver-based photo papers. And for those of you who live in salty, humid climates like Hawaii, I've done my own testing, too. I left a print on my covered lanai to test for corrosion. One year later and no rust or pits of any kind have appeared. In fact, cleaning the dust and salt buildup is fast and super easy--a wet rag and mild soap. Because if you're like me, you'd rather be out in nature than inside the house wielding a dust rag.
