Photos: Hawaii (April–May 2013)

Snapshots from the windward side and North Shore of Oahu, with a few from Maui. Taken with an iPhone 4, GoPro Hero 3 (Black Edition), and a Lumix GH2 camera + 20mm f/1.7 lens. The trip was in April and May of 2013.

Photography provides a context for paying attention to the details of things. Although I spent a month there in Hawaii, it was a sad time, and I didn't give as much of it to looking at things the way I normally would have. For what it's worth, the shots below are a few that I came home with.

I had just finished parking my car in Waikiki and Girard and Vanina walk by. Girard goes, "Hey, Shawn! Take our picture!" So, they get set up and I say, "Okay, Vanina…just move your paddle a little more to the the left... Good. A little more... Perfect!" (Click.)
