House in a Bubble

House in a bubble The past year has not rained much and the forecast until May looks to be the same so the brief showers this morning was a blessing. If you look closely enough in the photo, you may notice a house perched upside down in the bubble hanging precariously from the petal of a plumeria - that's my friends house. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to keep the furniture's from falling on ones head. And with that in mind, hope you all have a wonderful day - oh, and in response to that humorous comment on a previous post - yes yes, a hula girl is in the works! Thank you for the suggestion and idea =)

Almost forgot ... watch this video of my new fav band - Second Person - song is called "Wood" and the animation is superfabulous:

Gone Fishing


I admittedly took this photo a while ago but I did not have anything new to show for so here it is.

This was taken sometime mid last year and if you know the name of this bird, you get a free trip to Hawai'i! Ok ok, it would be a "virtual" free trip to Hawai'i courtesy of Google Earth but nonetheless, what is too good to be true, is still free! Now, I best be gettin back to work or I'll be fishing for my next food like this guy in the photo!
Have a nice day!

Check out this video and the surprise ending: Gone Fishing by Second Person:

Voggy Sunday

Voggy Sunday
I have to say, the scenery of Keawaula Beach looked a lot better in person than what the above photo shows but then again, the Vog, from the Big Islands volcano, have been making its presence on O'ahu, brought in by the "Kona" weather patterns and southerly winds. On a clear day, you would be able to view the distance mountain ranges. On this day, those distant ranges are but a mere silhouette.

Things that Matter


'Ohana - its not just a word. It's what matters most in the Hawaiian culture and on this Sunday and every Sunday, take the time to remember what matters most to you. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Any Given Sunday

You find out life's a game of inches, so is football. Because in either - life or football - the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when add up all those inches, that's gonna make the f***ing difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying!

A quote from the movie, "Any Given Sunday" and like the movie, life plays itself out in a matter of inches and seconds, where the perfect timing or a slight hesitation can mean either a sheer moment of epic enjoyment or a monumental wipeout, all frozen in a freeze frame captured in this photo.
Make the most of every second of every moment in your life, or you may miss out on the biggest ride of your life... Just Do It. In the end, you will have no regrets. Have an awesome weekend!

Shrouded In Clouds


Life is Art, Art is Life, Music is color

A music and a poem
Regina Spektor - Fidelity

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

By William Wordsworth

Eternal Blue

My first blog posting of 2010 and it has been a while since my last. I am actually doing fine to all who have inquired - thank you for caring =)

I took a break from photographing to give myself more time for other projects and activities and then one day blends into the next like a blur and all of a sudden a year has gone by.

But here I am and not making any long term commitments to posting on a regular basis but I thought I'd throw a photo on here for 2010 - it was taken this past Sunday, on a beautiful warm afternoon where time seems irrelevant and the moment eternal.

May all your New Year aspirations be fulfilled!
