Do Androids Dream of Electric Turkeys?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Turkeys?

In my personal climbing, I have always been more fascinated by long routes.  The idea that these huge walls of rock can be climbed, that with the right vision one can find the perfect line that winds its way up hundreds of feet of rock, is mind blowing.  It shouldn't be possible, yet it is.  And I've been wanting to pay homage to those visionaries by illuminating their lines.  So, I finally have. 

 

The problem has always been finding a good partner.  These routes usually take your average climber all day to climb.  They are slow and laborious affairs.  I would need to climb it quickly and efficiently.  And I would need to do it in the middle of the night, my path lit by a cumbersome jacket of LEDs and a fanny back battery pack getting in my way.  So, when I met Miranda, I thought perfect I'll give the lights to her, and so I did.  And when the full moon arrived, we made our way into Black Velvet Canyon and eyed up Dream of Wild Turkeys (5.10a).  2 hours and 18 minutes later we were at the top of all 7 pitches and 700' of climbing.  Half an hour after that, we were back on the ground and headed to retrieve my camera, fingers crossed that the image turned out well.

 

And now, you can see it for yourself. How did we do?  Do you like it?  

 

I do. 

  • Mounting

    All prints are delivered ready to hang with a 1 inch backing that "floats" your print off the wall.  This gives your photo that extra pop and gallery style look.

  • Signature

    All metal prints (except the 8x12) come with a backstamp printed onto the back of the photo.  The backstamp includes the name of the photo, the location (including the name of the rock climb where applicable), and my signature.  

    I personally sign and title all acrylic prints.

  • Acrylic vs. Metal

    I only work with the highest quality printers for my work.  So, whether you choose to go with a metal or acrylic print, I guarantee that you'll be happy with your new art.  

     

    The metal prints are printed on ChromaLuxe aluminum panels.  They are a great lightweight option.

     

    The acrylic prints are printed on a Lumachrome HD photopaper and then finished off with an acrylic facemount.  This is the absolute highest standard in photo printing.  If you want the best of the best, this is your option and it is the one I choose to display in my own home.
