Mid December

December 15, 2012

on a cold and quiet winter night
a traveller sought shelter for his wife..
what has this to do (you might well ask)
with these images? a picture’s worth a thousand words
and yet i add more seemingly unrelated
it’s just me trying to get a word in edgewise

     I will stand on the

moss-covered rock

in the middle of a forest

at the edge of the sea

This is my theme for now

my expedition

Akaka FallsWhere the falling water calls

This is my vision

this is my dream

A rainforest, an island, a song..


Let’s take a walk downtown for some fine green moss..  at the edge of the Pu’ueo Bridge in Hilo

The forest rock will have to wait!

(not too long, the good lord willin’ & the creek don’t rise..)

In the meantime here we are in the middle of town. 

And this is the shoreline for sure..


Yes this is downtown Hilo!

At the mouth of the Wailuku River

Where the Singing Bridge beckons

and the little lighthouse calls…

   (This one is called Roughwater Morning on redbubble & fineartamerica) 

  Out of order, out of

context, out of

town, the Puna coastline

stands out

out of the blue

or beyond the blue


  an unknown wavewalker 

in the early morning sunlight

in Hilo Bay..

And we come back to the canoes.

   Speaking of canoes..  these are all from Bayfront.. Big Island masterwork!                There’s the Singing Bridge

& a white canoe…

  And the dawn of this new day

gives me hope 

gives me light

    I  will stand my ground!

Nearing Mid-April

April 11, 2010

       Some of my favorite images from  recent times..

    (Maybe they didn’t make it into the first cut)

   A tribute to the Merrie Monarch Festival, 2010, Hilo– A Kaumana lehua..

   And now for some Hilo shorelines, always more Hilo shorelines, (that’s what we’re here for, Hilo Shore Lines            

“These shorelines have been blessed..”


 P. S.  I  got a  request for more canoe pictures… let’s see what we can find.


And here’s something to think about:  the bridge at Honoli’i..    

   Adios & Aloha from the Islands to the World 

(Tried to delete the duplicates but everything disappears, so the doubles are back..)

One more wave?   And one more waterfall..

Canoe Racing is a major sport here in the islands.

Hilo Bayfront is home to many fine examples of

the Hawaiian Canoe:

5-26 005   5-26 004   5-26 001   5-26 003

  5-26 002  5-26 009

These crafts are beautiful to behold whether they are out of the water or in it!

5-26 0065-26 007
