Redemption...


I found this old photo from my college days. My good friend, Tim, who was in my Photography class came with me to Makapuʻu at night near the famous Blow Hole Lookout where you can see a gusher of sea water shoot up out of a lavatube when the waves come in and compress the water forcing it out of the small skylight in the tube. We climbed down the cliff near the ocean and with the full moon in the background, Tim made a silhouette while I put the camera on a tripod and took a lighter and lit a can of underarm spray deodorant across the frame to make the flames. It brings back such beautiful memories...

Forecast...

This morning when I woke up, I checked the NOAA CONUS Radar site for Hawaiʻi...it showed approaching rain...

I looked outside and sure enough, huge rain laden clouds were approaching Honolulu...

When I came home, I checked the CONUS Radar again...

...and outside, the giant rain storm was approaching quickly...

Balloonery...








Nothing like balloon animals to please the children and embarrass the pre-teens...
