Well, this is the last one in the tanks, and th- th- th- that’s all, folks! Unless, that is, someone steps up to the plate.
Today we have engineer, physicist, and origami master Robert Lang, whose creations have been featured before (here), as well as several dollops of photos (e.g., here and here). Robert’s captions are indented:
I saw your plea for Photos of Readers contributions today, and while I have no pictures of me since COVID began (all my travel and lecturing went poof), I will offer two pictures from past times.
The first is from my last exhibition before COVID closed everything; a show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, WI. This past winter they brought in 3 separate exhibitions of origami, and were kind enough to include my work in all three parts of the show. This photo was taken at one of the gallery walks (an informal walk-and-lecture); the piece just behind me is “Ghost Deer,” a family of deer, each folded from a single (large) uncut square of mulberry paper.
The second photo is inspired by one of yours, adventuring in the mountains (from about 25 years ago). That’s me halfway across the Tyrolean traverse after climbing the Lost Arrow Spire in Yosemite with a group of friends. The Lost Arrow is a pinnacle that is separated from the cliff next to Yosemite Falls. To climb it, one rappels about 250’ down from the rim to the notch at the base of the spire, then climb back up the spire, dragging the rope that is still attached to the rim; once you get to the top, you pull the rope taut and traverse back to the rim (which is what I’m doing in the photo). It was pretty adventurous, but still cannot compare to your photo, because, well, I’m still wearing clothes.
