My wife, my daughter and I chased-down a never-done in July. On the road, with our out-of-town doctor’s visits complete, bags packed – a task from several days before, and no pressing obligations, the challenge set before me by my wife was to get my daughter, my wife and me to Hawaii (any of the five islands), to gather some summer rest, to explore new sites/sights, to try out some new things and to photograph the visual treasure among the islands; the challenge broadly – rejuvenate. Honolulu on Oahu is where we landed after being bumped flights and arriving five hours later than intended (it’s totally interesting that United Airlines found us new flights and provided us tickets for another flight to use within the next year … as we entered our plane we were later than planned, but ahead financially); we stayed at a Waikiki hotel, minutes away from the Waikiki beach, surfing and lazing in the sun. The images, here, are starting point images Waikiki, in the evening.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt
