V: Labyrinth

View Uncropped

Lani Kai: I really like this picture for some reason
Trypto: it's certainly got the diagonals going on
and evokes MC Escher
Trypto: I think you could have cropped it about a fourth in from the right
Lani Kai: yeah, I was thinking it might even look better as a square image
Lani Kai: instead of a 3:2 aspect ratio
Trypto: a perfect square would remove all trace of that thing on the right
Trypto: almost eerie how that exactly that works out
Lani Kai: I tried going back to that place later
Lani Kai: the first time I was there I only took this one shot
Lani Kai: the second time I tried multiple shots with different framing and none of them looked as good

IV: Black and White Rocks (Literally)

Lani Kai: what are those lines in the back?
Trypto: those are from the side of a chair
Lani Kai: ok, so why doesn't the rock on the left get to join in on the fun?
Trypto: it's the evil mastermind rock who's telling the other guys what to do
Lani Kai: I'm guessing the one on the bottom is the one who's just big and dumb
Lani Kai: so what does that make the remaining rock?
Trypto: um, the one who has to climb on top of the big dumb one

III: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Lani Kai: this is "somewhere over the rainbow"
Trypto: was this taken from the airplane on your trip then?
Lani Kai: yeah
Lani Kai: on the way back
Lani Kai: or rather, one of the connecting flights
Trypto: note to self: hide the explosives in digital camera

II: Thinking Cap

Trypto: I call it 'minimalist arrangement number F'
Lani Kai: so what does the cap represent?
Lani Kai: is that your "thinking cap"?
Trypto: wow, that was lame
Lani Kai: heh
Trypto: no, the cap was just sort of there
Trypto: it was like the first picture I took with my new camera

I: Churros

Trypto: ooh
Trypto: pretty
Lani Kai: I like how there's a churro stand on the left
Lani Kai: heh
Trypto: is that the hidden message?
Trypto: the world may change and become a blur, but there will always be churros
Lani Kai: I'm not sure
Lani Kai: but I really wanted a churro that day
