Legacy...



Somewhere. Way back in the blurry depths of time. Shortly after the camera was invented. Someone made the first set of bunny ears behind their companion. What a legacy to leave this troubled world...

Angle...


It is the angle of the viewpoint which truly makes the picture interesting. The viewpoint making life interesting. That is so true...

Awoken...


Another giant was awoken from the depths of molten rock...

Intricate...


I couldn't design a more beautiful organic form if I tried. That is why I am not God. Simple. Well. Honestly. That and a whole bucket load of other reasons...

Masks...




We all wear masks everyday. I like to see what is behind the mask. Sometimes there is no difference...

Rose...


A small rose from Pele. Resting her tired head and worn out heart on his solid trunk of rough but tender loving firmament...

Nice...


Nice work Dietrich. It has a beautiful spirit about it...

Joy...



Koa was jumping for joy. Or jumping with joy. Or joyously jumping. Whatever you call it, it was pure joy for me...

Smiles...


No matter how fantastic your smile may be. Always share it with the world...

Cyclops...


You can't beat intimacy shared between two people. When you put your foreheads together. You see only one eye in the other person. Everyone should make a cyclops with someone at least once a day...

Being...


A giant being showed up for awhile at the volcanic crater. Woken from his eternal rest. He didn't look too happy...

Closure...



The road to the Jaggar Observatory was suddenly shut down because the wind shifted and the noxious gas was blowing towards the lookout...

Mixed Signals...


I am not sure whether this woman is making the shaka sign or saying "call me"...

Jealous...


Good thing akua Pele is not the jealous type. Some women show up at her home with equally gorgeous fiery red hair...

Making...


Looks like a combat battlefield photographer in the making...

Brightening...


A little splash of nature's beautiful yellow can brighten up the most dreary overcast day...

Ho'ailona...


I looked up in the sky and saw what I at first thought was an akua image of Lono. The god of peace. Then I realized it was Ku. The god of war...

Cold...


You know it is cold when you can see the steam rise off of your spam musubi...

Flair...



It is good to have a little flair in life...

Reflecting...


We all need to spend some time reflecting. Literally...

Trio...


Best friends forever...

Haunting...


Some people are haunting. Some little children are haunting. You are haunting. Knock it off. Please...

Privacy...



Sometimes the boys need to have some privacy in discussing little boy matters. I respect that. Elliott gives brotherly advice to Koa. Then they hug. That is awesome...

Threat...



I went to inspect this beautiful red volcano blossom when an angry wasp emerged and assumed a threatening posture. I don't bother wasps when I am the only one threatened. Even when they are aggressively chasing me. I retreat rather than snuff out their life out of respect for all of God's miracles. But if my boys are with me and threatened. All bets are off. Ke Akua understands that. And that doesn't only apply to wasps...

Blessings...


When you travel thousands of miles for sunshine. And life gives you rain. You can still have a most wonderful happy time. There is a lot to learn in that...

Love...



Akua Pele presents her spectacular show for people from around the world. And in return. They bless her with their presence of happiness and love. Not a bad arrangement if you ask me...

Life...


Everything which is alive doesn't necessarily have a spirit. But everything alive has the Ha. The breath of life...

Deluge...


Still raining like crazy all day and night...

Fried Eggs...


Elliott says he doesn't like fried eggs. He wants sunny side up eggs. I'm not sure there is a difference. He eats whatever I cook. I don't think he knows the difference. Come to think of it. I am not sure I do either...

Marshmallow...





On a cold chilly night. You can't beat roasting marshmallows on an open fire. Even if you inadvertently turn the marshmallows into edible charcoal...

Alert...



The little dogs were on full alert...

Elliott...



Elliott was pensive...

Easy...


It is not easy being a kid...

Christmas...






Thunder. Lightning. Rain. Less focus on presents and usual gifts from the heart. More focus on being present and gifts of the heart. Made all the difference in the world...
