Our Fondest Aloha To Hannah

13 days with Hannah went so fast but nonetheless a wonderful time. Today Hannah, Dawn, and Jay return home to Oahu and left a few hundred clicks from my Nikon D300S. These three are my favs of the two beautiful Princesses in my life.

Christmas Day Surfers

What a way to spend Christmas Day if you are a surfer, or even a spectator, specially if you have a Nikon DSLR in your hand! At the Kahului Harbor in one of those regular winter swells.

My Favorite Christmas Song

Holy Night Hawaiian Style by Willie K

If you're a Christian, check out the lyrics of this beautiful song. It's so  relevant to the weary world that we live in today. It's not even supposed to be Christmas anymore, simply and intentionally.....happy holidays. Pardon my french but that really sucks big time

Our Top 2 Favorite Views From Our Balcony

Reminds me of God's promise to Noah "I am giving you a sign of my permanent promise to you and to all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will be seen in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with everything that lives. Never again will there be a flood that will destroy all life." Genesis 9:12-15

Why Does It Matter?

 I just wanted to share a story from a Pastor that was delivering his message on CSN Christian radio this morning:

A man was walking by the beach when he saw this little kid throwing a starfish from the shore back to the ocean. He told the kid that there are literally hundreds of starfish out there and they will simply bake under the heat of the sun and die that it wouldn't matter what he was doing. The kid replied as he tossed another starfish towards the ocean "it matters to that one"

Yes the world is like that today with countless unbelievers (starfish) dying spiritually but we can make a difference.
