Default HT's Photo Sharing Thread - Chapter 5

Hiked up to Manoa Falls Saturday. There was some kind of runner's event going on and there were lots of people on the trail. The first pic is this natural arch between the trees. While I was setting up, three girls came along and I took their photo with their own camera. I wish I had a copy to show here as they were monkeying around, hanging from the trees, having a good time.

The second pic is looking straight up into the forest canopy.

The third isn't Manoa Falls, of course. But it's more beautiful, I think. Good things do come in small packages.

This was taken out at Kaʻena Point. It was a lot easier to take a picture of a ʻaʻama shell than it was to try to get a live ʻaʻama to sit still for a portrait.

Mel, awesome Kung Hee Fat Choy pics. Love it! I thumbed through all the other shots in your Flickr album. Just great! That S5 gets great shots! Do you know if the festivities in Chinatown carries on today? If so, me and my lady might head on down there.

Jim75, all your stuff is, as always, just amazing as well. The Manoa Falls pics could fit right into backround art for a major fantasy film such as Lord of the Rings.

integlspwr, beautiful S2000. Probably the prettiest production design Honda ever came out with yet. I think that model looks better than the NSX. That shot by Jordan Shiraki is magazine cover material for sure! All it needs is an Import Model standing next to it. Does the carbon fiber hood cut down enough weight to validate the otherwise mismatched look? Unless you like that look I suppose. Still, nice ride.

Everyone's contributions here are just incredible.

This is Maunalua Bay in Hawaii Kai at low tide, where you can actually set up shop IN the bay when it's low, as you see these folks have done...



That shot was taken from the shoreline at Kuliou'ou Beach Park. Across the bay you see the foot of Koko Head, a.k.a. Portlock, with "China Walls" (the rocky area) on the very tip.

Another shot from the same park at sunset, with homes along Wailupe Circle beneath it....



Then, way over on the west side on the Waianae Coast, you have here our Sleeping and Counting (City & County) Parks & Recreation crew getting some R 'n R themselves...



lol!

Nah, but to be fair, it was around lunch time when that shot was taken. Classic!

You got some nice height on that last pic, Mel. Were you standing on something?

Love the sandbar shot you got there Pomai. Kind of a low effort sandbar where you don't need a boat to get to it.

And I guess you also caught our tax dollars hard at work.... oh boy!

Myopic - The height I gained in the last picture results from standing on the rise just outside the fancy office building (can't remember the name) where the Professional Image copy center is located next to Remington College.

Also, if anyone is looking for a place to develop black and white film, try Rainbow Photo Lab at Keeaumoku. I dropped my film off there Saturday and will be picking it up tomorrow -- could have had it same day if I'd dropped off before 2. They do medium format too.

I've never heard of that superstition. Last I checked, the camera needs to be pointed at the sun in order to capture it while it sets. And after repeatedly taking sunset shots for many years, none of my digital cameras' CCD sensors seem to have been ruined by that. It's actually easier now to get those shots since my new camera has an EVF (electronic view finder), so I don't look at the sun directly with my own eyes.

You're right though now that I look at that shot. It's almost like looking at the sun live. Kinda' blinding. Sorry about that.

Some kite surfers and a wind surfer take advantage of gusty winds yesterday at Diamond Head...



Commitment to the session...



Grabbed this shot of the beautiful and majestic Koolau range while driving down Kamehameha highway in Kaneohe...



Kinda' cool to have Koolau Farmers (sign) in the shot. Too bad those cars are in the way a little. Still, I could open that in Adobe Illustrator and make a nice t-shirt design for them out of that shot.

I was surprised to find a second Koolau Farmers location in City Square on Dillingham. They're located smack in the middle between Young's Fish Market on one end and the old Grocery Outlet space on the other end.

Me either. But I have heard of it as it relates to the lens of the human eye...'cept I don't think it's a superstition!

Oh, don't apologize for that, Pomai. That's part of the beauty of that shot...it's so realistic.

Magical shots my friends, and not helping with the East Coast, Winter Why The F*%K am I NOT in Hawai'i blues.........

Though it warms my heart, not so much for the fingers and toes...

That Koolau rang shot is AWESOME, Pom! I have tried to explain the water etched mountains of Hawai'i to friends and they don't really "get it" but shots like that is exactly what I am talking about! Simply awesome!

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Mel, great parade shots. Lots of great color.

Pomai, my favorite is the surfer getting ready to launch in over the top of the shore break.

I went to the Byodo-In Temple in Valley of Temples early this morning. I ended up being there almost 2.5 hours. What a peaceful place. The first two shots are of the whole temple. The third is the temple bell that's hung in it's own little shelter. I love that bell. As you can see, there is a wooden pole suspended from the framework by ropes. I'd say it's about 7" in diameter. You just grab the white rope, draw it back, and let it go to ring the bell.

The roof of the Temple is highly ornamented. The third shot is of the Buddha inside. There was a fellow from Germany taking pics at the same time I was. He offered to let me use his 10mm fisheye lens. You can really see how the interior framework is bowed. Very fun lens.

The AF (from Kane`ohe) says of Jim's Byodo-In shots... "OUT-standing!" (And the grey sky behind the second shot is typical of the area.)

Finally, there is a huge koi pond that surrounds the Temple on two sides. It is full of the biggest, fattest koi I've ever seen. There are also black swans. They're pretty friendly, or hungry, or both.
