A brief interlude from my day-to-day trip telling.
So, let it be said that Darin is a pretty great photographer. He often takes pictures people might not normally take, offering interesting new perspectives on the same scene. But I also think he really shines at portrait type photos; here are a few of my favorites of his from our trip:

"When we arrive, sons and daughters/ we'll make our homes on the water / we'll build our walls aluminum / we'll fill our mouths with cinnamon." 

"By land, by sea, by dirigible / we'll leave our tracks untraceable now." 

these next three i feel capture Polly perfectly.

and these next three might just be my favorite pictures ever.
