Ghost Surfer

And looks like he is a beginner judging by the size of the surf. Either that or this is simply a test of long exposures gone bad?

A Simple Tool To Improve An Image

Any photographer would see the "flaw" on the first picture below almost immediately but for all the newbies like me, sometimes you just need to check out the image a few times to see that even simply cropping it would make a huge difference in showing the subject. It's called "CROP" in your photo editors.

One of Maui's Landmarks


Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. (HC & S). Each time I passed this place I kept telling myself to to stop and take a picture. Today I finally did.

I think this is the last sugar refinery in Hawaii. I hope it will not take the same path as that of Maui Land and Pineapple Inc. where I retired from. As I took this picture it saddened me that I failed to take one last picture of the Pineapple Cannery before they close it down. When I retired in 2003 they had over 1600 employees. Today I heard they only have 25 people working there and the company may not even survive the next two years. Very sad indeed.
