To me the take-away from this most unique of photo expeditions can be summed up in the expressions; surreal, is this for real, it really isn't real but we can make it real. How do you describe your joy after camping in the rain for two nights and you get to a really well appointed hotel, charge into the shower praying for hot water and out of the shower head comes a blast of freezing water. Yes, the knob is red and says hot and you know that the sun was shining all day and the solar system should be working. After much time getting frost bitten I turned the red one off and the cold blue one on and suddenly a blast of scalding water hit my skin and turned me red. Not wanting the next guest to think unkindly of the hotel I pried off of the knobs and rearranged them to the reality of the water temperature that would hopefully come down.
