  • A Cazimero Christmas

    Destination: Oahu

    When I was on Oahu for the Honolulu Marathon last week, I decided to balance my physicality with some art and culture. That is, I went to see Wicked playing at the Neal Blaisdell Center. I also went to see A Cazimero Christmas starring The Brothers Cazimero at the historic Hawaii Theatre in their three-show, one-weekend-only annual production.

  • November in Photos

    sunset over molokai oceanI’ve had some juicy assignments this year. I’m the first to admit it. In a couple weeks, when I recap the year, one of the highlights will surely be the time I spent participating on Molokai at the Creative Photography for the Soul workshop.

In place of Dewitt’s crisp Tommy Bahama look, Rikki wore t-shirts tinted with Molokai’s red dirt. But both Rikki and Dewitt wore the same puka shell bracelets, made by a local artist--and soon the purchase and “family crest” of my fellow workshop participants of Creative Photography for the Soul.

  • Creative Photography for the Soul. Part One.

    I arrived on Molokai one Saturday afternoon as vog rolled in from the south and filtered the horizon in haze. It made for some interesting sunset photography. But the vog’s appearance also meant no cooling trade winds to take the edge off the intense sun, and so, in three words, it was hot. But the weather would change throughout the week, as it does in Hawaii.
