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.
