Back to the Islands: Hawai’i in June!



With two of my best friends getting hitched this summer, it looks like I’ll be heading home. I’ll be back on the islands in June, soaking up the sun and praying the cost of living won’t eat me alive! Thought you might enjoy some shots of my stomping ground – O’ahu – analog style. These are some of my favorite spots – Kaimanas Beach, Hanauma Bay, Makapu’u tidepools – captured with my favorite Olympus Trip 35.

    The black-and-white style gives a certain point-of-view effect – well chosen. 🙂 I especially like the first photo of the palm trees – I’ve always loved palm trees – and the last photo with the parachutes over . . . a sunset?
    In any case: beautiful.

    Fantastic photos! I really like the last palm tree photo. How do you approach the Trip’s zone focusing system? I am very new on this camera and could really use some advice if it’s ok. 🙂

      Thanks Christian! It’s always nice to know that someone is appreciating my random snaps. To be honest, my approach to the Trip is a bit of a crap shoot. I assume you mean how you know the image is in focus. Generally I guess how far away the subject I want in focus is from me, and choose the illustrated icon accordingly (the “head” for a closeup portrait, the “mountains” for a landscape, and whatever falls between on one of the other two settings). I have more problems with the metering, but as I generally shoot in sunny places, I end up falling back on the “Sunny 16” rule (On a sunny day set aperture to f/16 and shutter speed to the [reciprocal of the] ISO film speed [or ISO setting] for a subject in direct sunlight). Developing a roll of film is always a surprise! Hope this helps and happy shooting
