11 days blasti

Uncharted. 11 days blasting down dirt roads, sleeping in hammock, tents and under the stars, discovering true wild places in several states, expanding my knowledge of scuba diving and freshwater marine life, and finally ending in an epic solar eclipse deep in the Idaho forest - this was a road trip for the books. A regular guy trip - not a vanlife adventurer and not a trust-fund traveler. Just incredible times with family and friends. Can't wait for a few moments to edit tonight and start sharing photos with you guys. Oh, and a shower! . Selfie, remote alpine lake.

On my way to Sawtooth Lake right now w/ @matthewsavillephoto & Sean Goebel and stopped to take this photo at Alpine Lake... it's been a rough hike for me because I started on a Keto/no carb diet a few weeks ago and I didn't realize how hard it would make backpacking a 55-60lb pack up to 8300 ft.. lol.. no matter, I'm doing it and can't wait to get there... time to get my pack back on and onward and upward!!! Ps: I better lose like 10lbs of fat after this lol!! ---- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory #sawtoothlake #alpinelake #eclipse #eclipse2017

An extract on #alpinelake

The longer and revised version of The Picture of Dorian Gray published in book form in 1891 featured an aphoristic prefacea defence of the artist's rights and of art for art's sakebased in part on his press defences of the novel the previous year. The content, style, and presentation of the preface made it famous in its own right, as a literary and artistic manifesto. In April 1891, the publishing firm of Ward, Lock and Company, who had distributed the shorter, more inflammatory, magazine version in England the previous year, published the revised version of The Picture of Dorian Gray. The only novel written by Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray exists in several versions: the 1890 magazine edition (in 13 chapters), with important material deleted before publication by the magazine's editor, J. M. Stoddart; the "uncensored" version submitted to Lippincott's Monthly Magazine for publication (also in 13 chapters), with all of Wilde's original material intact, first published in 2011 by Harvard University Press; and the 1891 book edition (in 20 chapters). As literature of the 19th century, The Picture of Dorian Gray "pivots on a gothic plot device" with strong themes interpreted from Faust.

About the literary hero, the author Oscar Wilde said, "in every first novel the hero is the author as Christ or Faust." As in the legend of Faust, in The Picture of Dorian Gray a temptation (ageless beauty) is placed before the protagonist, which he indulges. In each story, the protagonist entices a beautiful woman to love him, and then destroys her life. In the preface to the novel (1891), Wilde said that the notion behind the tale is "old in the history of literature", but was a thematic subject to which he had "given a new form". Unlike the academic Faust, the gentleman Dorian makes no deal with the Devil, who is represented by the cynical hedonist Lord Henry, who presents the temptation that will corrupt the virtue and innocence that Dorian possesses at the start of the story. Throughout, Lord Henry appears unaware of the effect of his actions upon the young man; and so frivolously advises Dorian, that "the only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing." As such, the devilish Lord Henry is "leading Dorian into an unholy pact, by manipulating his innocence and insecurity."
