    Had a few hours to myself, so for $6 I hit the Waikiki Aquarium for some photography practice. After an hour, I realized I forgot to recharge the camera battery. Tisk tisk.

    Very peaceful rowing pic, Acousticlady.

    MJ, great aquarium shots. It took me a second to figure out the one with the arm extended down into the water.

    I went for a walk around Kailua this morning. It was one of those 'it feels so good just to be alive' mornings. The first pic is of the canal that empties Enchanted lake into the ocean. The second is fishermen at Makapu'u. I took some more shots of boogieboarders, but I'll probably post them later. The last one is from a few weeks ago. It was taken near the pillboxes above Lanikai.

    Jim, I love the last one the best. How in the world did you get the cactus plant in the foreground to be in focus along with the rest? It makes the picture.

    MJ, I love the aquarium vacuum/arm pic, too. Very cool!

    And acousticlady, I like the man in the water behind the canoe. Looks like he fell out and is watching them row away....

    Thanks for the comments. You know, it only takes a little encouragement to get me to post more. You may all be sorry....... So far, I've only uploaded 6 pictures. But I've been playing photographer for almost 30 years (how is that even possible!) so I have literally thousands to choose from.

    This is one of my favorites of Charley Young Beach. Taken many years ago with my 35 mm, but it looks even older than it is.

    Thanks Cyleet. It was taken with a wide angle zoom lens, 12-24mm (35mm equivalent range of 18-36mm). At the widest end (12mm), if you have a small aperture, then the depth of field is probably from about 7 inches to infinity. This means that everything from 7 inches away from the lens and beyond will be in focus. I can't say for sure, but it's likely I focused on the cactus and then recomposed.

    I really dig the reflection in the first pic. Nice sharpness on the fishing pole, especially contrasted with the background.

    I agree. The cactus caught my attention too. It's got a weird "cartoony" look to it, for lack of a better word.


    And acousticlady, I like the man in the water behind the canoe. Looks like he fell out and is watching them row away....
    Haha, I never thought of it like that.

    Here's some pics from the Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden in Kaneohe from last weekend. The leaf in the first pic is about 3ft across and 4 or 5ft long. I guess the second one is some kind of palm? Something that I've noticed over-time is that there are a lot of different kinds of palm trees. The mushrooms in the last pic were about an inch high.

    More from Hoomaluhia. It's really a beautiful place and a great place to chill. It has an excellent chillification factor for tree-hugging chillbillies.

    The first pic is Kailua Beach from last night. I parked at this little Beach Park that's toward the Marine Base from Kailua Beach Park. I got absorbed in the evening and taking pictures and when I finally headed back to the car I had been locked in the parking lot. Luckily, while I was trying to figure out what to do, this guy came along and told me if I promised to read the signs at beach parks from now on he'd let me out. He was very cool about it.

    The second pic is looking across Shark's Cove this morning. There weren't any really big waves, but the ocean was plenty rough. When waves would hit the lava, they'd explode. Individual streams of water would shoot up and out like fireworks. The photo doesn't really capture it, but the top right of the main explosion shows a little water rocket shooting up. No snorkeling at Shark's Cove today.

    The last pic is a sign on a scaffold at Ehukai Beach Park/Pipeline, advertising a surfing event. I was there about 10:30 and no-one was surfing. Conditions weren't great. Down the road at Sunset there were 2 people in the water para-sail-surfing.

    I liked those "aquarium" shots.
    These were taken at the Maui Ocean Center




    Sea creatures(kittens?) are cool!

    ahhh it's an aquarium themed week I see!

    We took Jaxon (9mo) to the aquarium and the zoo today. He wasn't too thrilled about the zoo, but he LOVED the aquarium as much as I thought he would since he loves watching the water when we go on our afternoon walks. He sat and played with the clown fishe exhibit for about 10 mins and laughed and chased them around with his hands. We're heading to Maui for his birthday in April, so we totally have to hit up the Maui Ocean Center.

    The head was in the crocodile (I think) exhibit at the zoo...it was so ... eep! And I couldn't find the sign for what the bird was, but it looked cool.

    Jim, I love the shades of gray in the Shark's Cove shot..almost a B&W without trying. And I am reminded I have not found time to visit the botanical gardens in Wahiawa....your photos are so beautiful.

    MM, your lobster is cool! And the shrimp shot is neat, the blur adds to it.

    integlspwr, love the car pic! Sporty cool.

    Tat, your pics make me want to go back to the East Coast...well, just for a little while.

    Kelly, my favorite is the two of them looking down into the fishpool with the butterfly fish.

    Jim:

    (post 459 / pic 1) reminds me of the scene where the Predator bleeds and Arnold says, "We can keel et."

    (459/2) that's a creepy looking plant. looks like something out of Metroid

    (461/2) I like that abstract tree trunk

    (461/3) those blue/grey schrooms look cool. I got a similar one at the Honolulu Zoo, but not so up close and detailed


    TATTRAT
    : I like the architecture in your area. Love the red brick in 464/3


    integlspwr: nice car & photo. does your plate say "group herd"?


    mm: I think that poor lobster believes you mean to eat him with some melted butter


    kelly: I love the reflection in 468/3. Your hubby and son are positioned perfectly under the fish. Looks like your flash lit them up just right.

    Cool looking secretary bird (I think) in 469/3. It reminds me of the video game Joust.


    acoustic lady: I like the subdued light of your first pic. the silhouet of the pole and fisherman contrasts nicely with the curvy, reflective tide.

    Jeeze that horse has a set of teeth.

    Nice blue/grey sea water. Almost looks like Hawaii.

    Awsome pic, Tat. The red brick, the blue glow of the sky, and the perspective of the rail are all powerful elements.

    I like the effect the movement of the shrimp's antennae created.

    Very nice! My favorite is the one where they're checking out the lionfish. Kind of a look of wonder on the little one's face.

    Thanks cyleet. That is a very monochromatic shot. I'll have to covert it to B&W to see what that looks like.

    Yes, there are some very interesting plants. Kind of otherworldly.

    I'm guessing the license plate means "Grip Hard"
