The little things

Gecko in my hand

Gecko, Apataki atoll, Tuamotus, French Polynesia

Arriving to a new place I’m often drawn to the small things. A new landscape, in its entirety, is too overwhelming. I have to take it piece by piece.

So this is one of the first encounters I had in French Polynesia once we embarked the National Geographic Orion and headed out into the blue. We stopped at the Apataki atoll. At some point the heat, wind, salt, and colour became too much for me and I looked down. Surprise!!
