Lights ... Camera ... DP Theme ...

Its been a little humid the last couple of days due to the "Kona" weather, so my favorite place this morning was in the shower! For obvious reasons, you can't go there, so I bring you a post-shower photo. The other option was the ocean, but surf's up so no cameras there =) Hopefully, this photo will not offend anyone. Happy theme day to you all!

If you will kindly also stop by the following Daily Photo sites who also participated in this theme day, it would be well worth it!...

Do all guys in Hawaii look that good (first JJ, now you...)?!
Women there must be sooo happy! =)

Seeing your face would have been nice, but thanks A LOT for the rest of you, anyway...

Oh my! Well, actually I don't agree with your "for obvious reasons you cannot go there" comment. It's not so obvious to me...

I thought you were a woman too. I think I really fancied you as muppet! Oh how your photographs cause my imagination to wonder...
Now you are not so anonymous - you're a blogstar! Blog on, blog on.

Such lusty women we have on these blogs! And, I'm certainly glad that Kala's sex has been determined (even without the shower)! Kala, I immediately noticed your fish hook necklace. What's hanging on the door knob?
PS. Your self-image is great; since I'm too old to "woo hoo" I'll settle for telling you that you definitely look healthy!

Hey, great idea for your photo! And it sounds like you have a global fan club now :-). Your shots of Honolulu are wonderful--this is the first time I've been able to load your page successfully, don't know why it goes more slowly than others. I have a photo request: could you post a photo of the sets every couple of weeks? I'd love to see what the surf is like there. (Only wind surfing in Seattle.)

You have just killed me Kala! This shot will be my dreams for the next few years!

this picture isn't offending me, I can tell you ;)

PS: You're really sure your pic didn't get mixed up with the photo of an underwear model?

This must be the most visited daily photo of the day!!!

About the "offensive" image I just have to say: please, offend me directly to my e-mail.

And once again: Woo Hoo!!!

Oh my gosh!!!I thought Kala was a girl too, and couldn't figure out who that Nicolas character could be. Thanks, Edwin S, for pointing that out. Well, although the photo rendered me speechless for a few moments, all the comments really had me rolling with laughter. What a treat, and nice abs, Kala (and now we know what all the muahahaha was about)!

Kala, you just redifine the concept 'man' with this post, no more doubts you're NOT AT ALL a girl.

Pec...I MEAN NIColas...yeah, come on guys....read the PROOOOOOOOOOOOOfile! LOL! ;-)

Abs...I mean Nic...we're arriving tomorrow around 11PM...and we don't have any ride from the airport to the Marriott yet...do you have wheels? Maybe not, we KNOW you don't have any "spare tires!" But then again, hubby might have taken care of that detail...and come to think of it, I think I'll just come without the hubby now...oh, um, yeah, and how about I leave the other 4 males at home too--I spend entirely WAY too much time taking care of THEM!

I need some down time!

Geez, I'm so sorry...waaaaaaaaay outta line here...don't know what got into me!

I'm definitely feeling MUCH BETTER now "Kala"...too bad it doesn't help my little guys much...

Thanks again for gracing us with your six-pack!

YCPY! (A mom of four boys, one already an ADULT can say this...you cutie-patootie you!)

OK, I'm done now...send the blog police after me PLEASE!

Ok, there's gotta be a way to start up some kind inter DP romance. All the single female DPers please send your applications to me and I will set you up on dates with the faceless Mr. Kala. On your turn you will have to meet him on a beach where there will be multiple shirtless men roaming around. You must come with a plate of homebaked cookies and you must pick him out of the crowd by recognizing his abs. =)

Blogger Ame said...


I'm there TOMORROW!! I'll do the walk-thru...the "leg work" for this IDPR...might have to do the back-work and the front-work...don't want to leave anything to the imagination here! And I think we better let the ladies know exACTly what they're getting...so I better take my measuring tape and get some important stats...like chest, waist and deltoid size!

Anyway, I'll make sure all those shirtless guys don't hurt our "Kala" and that this whole idea is on the up-and-up!

OH-OOOO! I think I hear sirens...who called those blog police!

ok...my sister sent me your photo and I have to tell you that I have requested that she take an extra suitcase so she can bring you back home from Hawaii...and ship you to me. I'm older, nicer, sweeter, and very able to transport you wherever you want to go, including to the gym to work out with me. Thank you for the nice landscape shot from the islands!!!! Too bad you're not regularly at my gym! I do have an opening for a pool boy (but don't have a pool, haha.)

Aloha and mahalo nui for stopping by - I was laughing at some really crazy and original comments - some of you should really do stand up comedy! I posted the image during a playful, spur of the moment, not thinking straight mood trying to come up with a silly photo for the self portrait theme, so I guess it will be safe to say this will be the first and last bare skin photo of me since we've got the theme now out of the way =) Aren't we all breathing a sigh of relief!!! I am sure Dana was rolling her eyes when she saw this photo haha! Foxy boy was wondering what all the commotion was about!

To answer Kates question - the thing hanging on the door is this small little stuff dog thingy that someone gave to me =) Surprised you noticed! That was very observant!

To some of you that thought Kala was a female - sorry to disappoint and confuse =P

To Moonsoleil - theres a lot of people much more fit than I and they don't even workout! How kewl is that!

To Kim, did you mean an image gallery of photos posted or just image gallery of random photos we take including photos that are not posted?

Yes, me too, thought Kala was a female name, but of course, goes to show the culture differences! You have been taking care of yourself very well, that's for sure! I envy that you can do so much exercise directly in nature, no boring gym necessary...so as you say, many are in great shape where there is such a climate and beautiful surroundings...

I just want to say that I like the way the flash is reflected in the pic. It's neat the way it illuminates your face and yet hides it at the same time...but I'm sure that wasn't intentional!

Hope you closed your eyes, it must have been bright!

Friday, August 4, 2006 at 6:29:00 PM HST  
Blogger Kala said...

yay! the one person that noticed the special effects lighting I was actually most proud of about this pic and felt compelled as a result to post this. I had intentional done this by cupping my hands over the flash in order to get that effect - the light did not affect my eyes in any way because of the positioning of the hand over the flash!

Thanks for noticing!!! Damn, I feel you should get at least a postcard or something! =)

I am very happy now - you made my weekend!!!
