Subject: [Leica] Back with last PAW of 2005 and a book recommendation...

Happy New Year Everybody!

I'm back from the holidays and looking forward to flipping through the 
photos that folks have posted over the last couple of weeks.

My last PAW of 2005 is the last sunrise of the year, viewed from the 
Hawaiian island of Molokai as light just started to spill over onto the 
dark side of Maui.  It was beautiful in person...I hope the photo conveys a 
little bit of the majesty:

The book recommendation:
"The Art of Travel" by Alain de Botton visits various parts of the world 
and views them (aesthetically) using the perspectives of various artists 
and writers.  I'd recommend this to any photog who likes traveling and is 
interested in seeing ordinary things a little differently.  For the first 
few days after I read this I was looking at everything I saw through 
different eyes.  I ended up shooting a lot more static landscape-type stuff 
over those days (like my PAW).  I don't know that the shots were all that 
great, but it was a good experience for me.

Hope all have been well.
