On Saturday, I head to Molokai for a week-long photography workshop with Dewitt Jones, Rikki Cooke and Jack Davis
. We’ll rise before the sun and stay out after dark pointing our cameras—spiffy DSLRs like a barely-used, new-to-me Canon 5D Mark II and handy ones like my iPhone—at horizons, beaches, palm trees, churches, hula dancers and who knows what else. We’ll download those images onto our computer hard drives and, hopefully, tweak them into something meaningful. Maybe, if we’re lucky, even something approximating art. And I am already inspired just by thinking about it. The timing couldn’t be better. Especially as I review the rather few images from the past month.
What happened to October, anyway? From the looks of it, I spent a day at Polihale State Park with my friend Pam (at Waikiki Aquarium with KP2
, the friendly Hawaiian monk seal. I walked the shoreline of Waikiki a couple mornings before some meetings and met a delightful man named Steve who held a dozen birds in each hand. But what about the rest of the month?
So, while there may only be 14 images from October in the slide show above, you can expect a whole bunch more for November.
