National Geographic Peeps Contest

Sunday, March 29, 2009
Magic Island and Ala Moana Beach

National Geographic has a "Peeps in Places Photo Challenge" so I thought it would be fun to enter this one! They are sooo cute, but VERY DIFFICULT to work with! Thank you to my wonderful assistant Jalna and her mom Mrs. Kihara for hanging out with me this morning!

This was the scene for most of the day:

We liked this spot but you couldn't see the water...

This spot was perfect except that it was waaaay too windy!

We spent more time doing this than taking pictures!

Here's a peep hanging out on a Hawaiian beach...

Jalna found this dog in the bathroom, so she decided to bring him along...

Finally we found a spot with no wind...except that you can't tell it's Hawaii!!

This is Jalna's mom patiently waiting for us and watching us make fools out of ourselves!

I'm not sure which ones I'm entering yet but I'll keep you posted!

Kewalo Boat Ramp and Hilton Lagoon

Sunday, March 22, 2009

I went to Kewalo boat ramp to try and catch some shots of Randy surfing...

But as you can see, there weren't any waves but there were a TON of paddleboarders...

So I decided to go over to the Hilton Hawaiian Village Lagoon instead.

Mattie and Papa

Saturday, March 14, 2009

He's so cute and innocent when he's sleeping...I had to rush and get my camera so I could get a few shots off before he woke up. I didn't have time to use a flash so all of these were shot at 1600 ISO f/2.8 .... I'm really lovin this ExpoDisc!!

White Balance Experiment Disaster

Round Table Pizza, Kailua
Sunday, March 8, 2009

I knew Round Table Pizza had horrible lighting conditions so I wanted to try out Jalna's "white plate" white balance doesn't help though, when the plates they use are practically gray with black speckles!!! That ExpoDisc is lookin real good about now!!
So, I was back to square one, which means I have horrible color balance in my sure looks yummy though, huh?

This is my favorite, favorite pizza...pepperoni, double mushroom, with pesto. I always order it whenever I go...
This is my friend Kevin with his niece.

Mick and Mattie go to the beach

Diamond Head
Saturday, February 28, 2009

Randy likes to take the dogs to the beach...they absolutely love it.
Mick hates the water, so she patiently waits for Mattie to come to shore just so she can attack him :)
