My wife and daughter are very gracious about accommodating me and the opportunity of a photograph. On my side, what is balanced is seeing a possible photo from the vehicle against the need to proceed onward with the journey with my family. My daughter and wife are avid readers. So, in stopping for a photograph, they usually have had a book going that they are eager to delve into. Over two weeks on Oahu my daughter read ten books (at the beach, in restaurants, in the car and late at night) – something you’d not have caught me doing at her age; I’d be out doing … something. Over the two weeks, we circumnavigated Oahu perhaps three or four times seeing the island fresh and then growing more and more familiar with the landscape and getting out for a few photographs. The following images are from Oahu’s North Shore and from southern Oahu at Sandy Beach and Diamond Head.
Listening to: John O’Donohue’s Greenbelt interview with Martin Rowe (August 2007).

Beautiful photos! You’re very lucky to have a wife and daughter that are so patient 🙂
Hey there, Trenee:
I am also lucky to have the encouragement of my wife and daughter (and son).
Thanks for looking in. 😉
You definitely are! 🙂
Hello, hello …
In Oahu, it occurred to me that Honolulu might be the equidistant point between New Zealand and Northern Alberta. We definitely met a few Kiwis in our travels and at day’s end gatherings in Waikiki.
Good to have you checking in …:)
10 Waves looks fantastic. It’s good you can all accommodate your passions together. Sometimes it’s hard to do.
Hey there, Jim:
#10’s waves is the one my wife was impressed with, too.
Accommodating passions together – that probably says something about years of growth & relationship, together, I’d imagine.
You have me thinking of Virginia Satir and relationships being dependent and independent — good psychology from many years ago.
Cool schtuff! 😉
