A few photos from today wandering around downtown Honolulu. I almost didn’t see the lady in the second photo. As always, photos are taken with a Canon 5d.
Got this weird angle of Magic Island from the drone. I was flying much lower than usual because of the low flying tour helicopters blazing past at 100 feet every few minutes. But sometimes being constrained helps you be more creative. I’d never seen this angle before.
Another amazing sunset on the west side of Oahu. Caught a solo surfer enjoying the view. Shot this quickie on a mavic 2 pro drone.
Doing work with Honolulu’s Standard Commercial this week taking some abstract’y candid business shots.
My dad has a big ol motor boat and took us for an amazing ride today. We cruised around in front of Waikiki and enjoyed the view. It was unfortunately a little too windy to swim today.
I brought my drone but forgot to charge the batteries. Ugh. But got some photos with the Canon 5d.
I was at Kahala Beach park flying my drone around and spotted this guy spear fishing. I always wished I knew a SINGLE thing about fishing. Growing up in Hawaii that is pretty embarrassing. Hopefully at 38 years old its not too late for me to learn.
At the Hawaii State Capitol building toward the end of the day on a Thursday. Taken with a Canon 5d and 24-70L lens. I really like the wavy white post reflections off the shiny floor.
The man in the photo turned to look at me soon after this shot. I ran away to the next floor above. A few minutes later he appeared looking for me. I expected the standard “delete that photo you took of me”. But he actually just wanted a copy. Thanks!
Checked out Downtown Honolulu’s Livestock Tavern and took a few photos. Beautiful restaurant and even better food. We had the steak, lobster roll, crab cakes, burger and lamb.
I loved the lighting, a soft white light reflecting off the buildings across the street was perfect. Also the beautiful red bricks always a reminder that you’re in Chinatown.
From thorns to flowers the Bougainvillea plant covers both ends of the spectrum. Taken at Iolani Palace in Honolulu with a Canon 5d and 24-70mm L lens.
Bougainvillea was the only thing that would grow at my house when I was a kid. I always had to trim the plants and repeatedly tore apart my hands on the thorns. I hated it. Only now, 30 years later can I appreciate this beautiful plant.
