    Thanks, Mel, although my kolea shots were just quick snapshots I grabbed before it got scared and moved too far away. Tatt's photos are art.
    Loved your photo of the Kukuihaele coastline, even with those ever-intrusive utility lines.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    TATT, is that the National Cathedral in DC? (I sung in a choir there way back in 1976.)

    I haven't had much luck shooting kolea this year as I did last year. Of course I did not really try. They are kind of elusive when you get close.

    I agree on the power lines. Essential utilities get in way of scenic photographs.

    Woohoo, TAT is back. I like how the speed sign is floating in the dark, and that all the lines lead to it.

    Thanks, Leo. You turning out to be my bes frien here! Not? Mahalo, anyway.

    Here's a trial of pictures from Photobuckets...

    Ididn't realize each post was limited to 3 pictures, so there's the 4th from the last post:

    A plant that very few people grow nowadays....
    Many people do not even know it exists.
    A relitive of white ginger it has a better fragerance.
    Also related to the plainer yellow ginger.
    It's major flaw is that the blosoms do not last.

    That which is precious, but ephemeral, is all the more so precious:

    Greene's Ginger.

    Usually I'm driving to work, but for once, after six years in Waikiki, here's a sunrise...



    For some reason, it reminds me of an alien invasion in some way. Perhaps in some way it was. I was in a moving car at the time, so that's the best I could get. I suppose some would consider The Landmark Bldg to be an alien affront in its own right. :-D

    So many amazing photos. All are great!

    Mel, love that pic of the green field overlooking the coast of the Big Island.

    Tattrat, all three of those pics are excellent. My favorite is the Cathedral, but the highway lights and sunset is a close second.

    AbsolutChaos, that sunrise does look like an invasion! Draw the slingshots or run for the jungle!

    This thread never fails to please.

    A while back, when I was still in Cincinnati, I got ahold of a lomography camera, the kind with four lenses so that it takes four shots on a single negative. Lomography is very low tech, so there is no aperature or adjusting of any sort, like using a point and shoot. For these particular shots I actually went by the literal shoot-from-the-hip theory, not even looking where my camera was pointing when I pressed the shutter.

    Went to Alaska over Christmas. Here's a few of the pics.

    1. My 6 year old nephew demonstrating his self described "Mad Skills".
    2. Young moose
    3. Last run of the night at the ski slope on the lift

    1. Hallway in the Anchorage airport. The ceiling lights depict the Northern Lights. They softly pulse and the colors shift forward.
    2. When my nephews saw I had taken this picture, they laughed uproariously noting that I had photographed a lingerie store.
    3. Looking across Cook Inlet from Beluga Point.

    Great shots, Jim, every one of them.

    That moose shot, did that moose think you were Sarah Palin. He has that look.

    Out of all of them, the two I like best (besides the moose) is the bowling shot (it's difficult to do action shots, especially indoors, especially in a bowling alley); and the ski lift (I don't know why, but there's a lot of feeling there).

    Sophie, interesting shots. I never heard of a lomography camera. What do you use it for?

    That low end lomography stuff makes me want to dig out my old, low end film cameras.... like my Kodak Brownie 620....er but film is scarce and where available, expensive... $20 for one roll.... 12 or 20 exp. can't remember.

    And then I think about the missing Diana camera somewhere in a box at my folks' place (dang I just left there this past weekend)....

    I do have my Ricoh auto-half, a fixed focus point and shoot that shoots 48 pictures on a standard roll of 24.

    Not so low end, but I think a nice one I shot this past weekend:

    Talking about old cameras, I've got a Kodak 3D that shoots on standard 35mm slide film. Kinda a pain to use since it doesn't have a built-in light meter and the shutter speeds and stop are a bit different then modern cameras.

    Not to mention the problem if finding slide mounts.

    But I have taken a few interesting 3D shots with it

    I'm particularly fond of the Ski Lift one, Jim. The limited color gives it a wonderful mood.

    I fell in love with old cameras when I went to college. My mom found a Canon AE-1 kit at a yardsale (which I've only recently brought back from Ohio and really need to take out shooting soon), and then in my sophmore year we were introduced to Holgas:



    Very cheap, low tech plastic cameras that are usually bound with liberal amounts of electrical tape to keep out most (but never all) of the light leaks. Holgas are known for their vignetting, which ironically seems to be making a comeback in digital form.

    I did a report on Lomography for my History of Photography class. To me, it kind of flies in the face of the idea that photographers have some "special way of seeing" and instead is focused on snapshot photography, happy accidents, literal shooting from the hip. The motto is "don't think, just shoot". Probably it appealed to me because at the time I got into it, I was rebelling against the concept of being an artist

    I like it when people go out of their way to a take a picture of something which inspires them. I love the grid like pattern of the little clouds. I wonder what makes the clouds do that.

    Interesting. Lomography is a trademark. It reminds me of Lensbaby.

    The ski pic reminds me of The Shining and The Thing.

    In the Beluga Point pic, I like the contrast between the foreground and background light.

    What's the name of that "tree stump" plant? I love its tubular "bark". The dark stuff.

    You must do eet!

    I agree. I have a lot of fun being in snapshot mode. I learn the most from happy accidents. If I really like how a pic turned out, I try to remember what and how I took it. If I recognize a similar situation in the future, I can take a more purposeful shot.

    Yesterday Manoa provided yet another spectacular sunset. The clouds do funky things, at the mouth of the valley. I did a decent job of capturing it, but I still need more practice.









    This was the coolest part of the sunset, but the most difficult to capture. The shape of the light reminded me of flames rolling along the ceiling, in a house fire. The orange light was more vivid in person, that what you see here.
