The reverse of my other photo trip, no animals to photograph on Kauai. The challenge here was sometimes the wind or rain was so strong it was hard to get the flowers to stay still (or use high shutter speed).

This one was taken with my new iphone

cars and etc...

Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. My clarisonic face brush broke last week and I went 5 day with out it. It felt like I have an inch of dirt on my face by thursday morning when I had a new fully charged one. That was added to my list of what I was thankful for.

I also found out that the monday after thanksgiving is the best time to bring your car in for repair. I had to take both cars in (there dash boards were light up like a christmas tree with all the warning lights) to get fixed. I have been putting it off for a long time. I was in and out like that - however my one car had to stay over and need some work done. Hopefully I will get it back today.

The other thing I discovered this past week - it was packed at the gym on wednesday and friday just a fyi next year to keep in mind.

My parents and I also on thanksgiving day drove down nicollett mall! I guess on thanksgiving from 6-10 pm you can drive up and down the street. It was fun to do - however the girls were barking like crazy - i believe they knew that they were not suppose to be on it.

I believe that these two photos say classic Hawaii! Just looking at either of them you would know you were in paradise.

We were suppose to be taking photos of the sunset but this shot was just begging to be taken.

One of the many hula girls I got. We had 6 girls that came and posed for us them we each got one to pose how we wanted. FYI it was cold and raining when this was was taken with flashes set up on her face to give that sunlight effect. The flash stuff I learned on this trip was amazing. (the pro photographer was holding the flash for me)

zip line

OK here they finally are - the photos of me zip lining. I will have to download the video later - major computer issues here that need to be figured out today cause it is getting worst the longer I put it off.

One hint - don't wear white when zip lining. You get grease from the clips and smells from the harness on you. Not to mention it poured inbetween lines.

getting my harness tighted

Getting clipped

Just got done repelling backwards over the waterwall

Going down the easiest zip line - which I did last, which made it really easy after the backwards one and jumping off a really high platform.

Last saturday I drove around taking photos of some murals around my neighborhood. This one I was watching them make and saw it before I left. I guess I wasn't suppose to see it yet...

Sorry no hawaii pics - I'm exhausted and knew I couldn't write a good blog on the photo. I don't know how I am always so busy but now but this week really was bad. Not to mention I'm still tired from the time zone change.

I'm also trying to decided to go back to school where and what I'm not too sure yet. I mean my dream I would like UCLA or UC - Davis.

Have a good weekend.

Kaua'i is full of roosters! They are running all over the island. They said the hurricane's are to blame - when it came there chicken coops blew over and they all got loose and the rest is history.

I wanted to get a couple good photos of them - however they don't like to have there picturce taken. Not to mention the pro's with use didn't like that we were taking photos of rooster. Oh well that is too back I took a ton and this is one of the best ones.

I have a couple of them crossing the road...insert your own joke there.

Surfer Dudes

On my trip they arranged for surfers to model for us. I think that they were looking at some of those waves thinking man I'm missing some good ones.

The first couple I think the background looks kind a fake but we were really on a beach doing a photo shoot. Hard to believe that I took some of these photos.

As usual my vacation was full of rain...on the other hand I have never seen so many rainbows in my life! I now know why they have rainbows on the license plates.

I'm back from Kauai, Hawaii! I went on another photo trip - this time with Nikon. It was good except for the weather. It rained every day - one day we were totally rained out.

I'm working on the photos and will upload them as soon as I can -

gone shooting

My horscope for today...It may be that you've come back deeply changed from a long voyage. Of course, travel changes everyone to some extent, but in your case, the change is more profound. You're going to have a problem getting back into your old life. It may feel too limiting for you. So what are you waiting for? Change it

More blogs coming november 14 ;)
