    That'll be the hardest part of this MPC, now where did I put that time machine? Nice choice on the theme.

    Just spent a week in Maui, which offered a few opportunities for weathered scenes...

    1. Very quick weathering:

    love #1 fuzz. is there a photoshop trick you use to do that three panel display? Or is it all done ad hoc to suit the particular photo?

    Thanks. The collage is a custom piece just for this. Although technically it's three separate shots, I felt this was the best way to create a single piece showing the theme.

    I tried shooting from a higher angle to show the footprints better, but then the waves/foam didn't look at good.

    We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

    I was working on something very similar to Noonan's concept with #2 here in Aspen..... might take a different turn with it now.
