Home Alone

Home Alone

from 25.00

It's like that first day of kindergarten. It was fated to happen. From the first day your child was born, you knew one day you'd have to send them off into the world alone. So, you fill their backpack with everything they'll need--snacks, pencils, crayons, and a love note. And with a tear in your eye, you watch them board the yellow school bus, toddling under the weight of their backpack. Imagine, then how hard it must be for a Laysan albatross parent to leave their chick behind. That's why the first time may only last a few hours. Then, a day. A couple days. A week. Eventually, albatross parents will spend upwards of three weeks between visits with their young as they head to the most productive part of the Pacific Ocean, way up north where the squid will hopefully be plentiful. The first day of kindergarten is always a happy-sad moment.

  • 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.
