I know I'm a little late on this one, but the kayak is pretty cool. My wife and I are both avid canoers (we have 2 canoes, an Old Town and a Smokercraft) and we've both done a little river kayaking. I've looked at some hand made canoes over the years but never saw a hand make kayak before...pretty cool. I think I would have to agree with Pat's friend though...for all the work that's gotta go into something like, I think I'd rather just buy one! LOL!!!
I like the shot of the totem, but I have to say that to me, there looks like a bit of barrel distortion in that shot. I guess it could just be the totem itself, but to me it looks like it's leaning towards the right towards the top of it. If you do any processing in Photoshop, I think there's a tool in there somewhere to correct that.
Anyways, cool shots...thanks for sharing!
