Pig split collaboration with Vorfas

A few months ago, I traded a few e-mails and images with Salomé (_Vorfas_), a talented artist whose work I really admire. Salome produced the following two pieces, given a split pig image that I took in the Bahamas last year: [Maia_41cm v1] [Maia_41cm v2] Thank you, Salome, for the wonderful imagery!

Hmmm. It occurs to me that I don't even know whether Salome is male or female. Ahhh, internet collaborations: they are strange beasts, are they not?

By coincidence, I happened to pull into port a few hours ago from an expedition to photograph oceanic white-tip sharks out in the Bahamas. We stopped at Big Major on the way back from Cat Island to photograph... PIGS on the beach! And this year, we were even more fortunate because one of the sows came running out with four piglets in tow. Piglets are just about the cutest thing on the planet.

I posted a bunch of images from the shoot over at Flickr.
