It was also a pulse shot so the lightning bolt strikes and flashes. 


It it was a great week for weather. Plenty of sun, but also a couple of really cool and cinematic thunderstorms that rolled in. I got a couple videos of waterspouts that formed just offshore one afternoon. I’ll see if I can figure out how to post one.

I didn't take this, but when I was in Grand Cayman this past March my son and I were playing at the shore as the sun was setting, and there was this older couple probably early 50's sitting down enjoying the sunset, and the lady came up to me and said she was snapping pictures of the sunset and caught this picture of my son and I and thought that we would like it.  So she just airdropped it to me right there and then.  This is one of my favorite pics of my son and I.

I'm no photo buff..but I've always like Peter Lik's stuff that we always look at in his Lahaina store in Maui.


Stuff like this (cliffs of Kauai).





Here's a shot or two from Maui that I took with my crappy camera phone last year. 


Sunset at our condo in Kaanapali.



Secret Cove Beach in Makena.

Two of my favorite photographers are Roy DeCarava and Fan Ho. They have a talent for composition I only wish I could achieve.




Fan Ho:














A few of my own that I took...not sure if I posted these before. Oh well lol...


I recently discovered that "somberscapes" is an instagram genre of photography and that I had been taking a lot of photos of somberscapes without realizing it:

Ansel Adams in Manzanar,(I've passed by this place a few times,but didn't have the chance to stop and look. Not much to it now,but it's definitely in the middle of nowhere). 





One I took,(Back to landscapes). 617487308_bgdtchwtrloopan2x5(1of1)copy.jpg.65c56170b99502b2695b69ef4d258139.jpg

I like growing parsley both because it's nice to have it to cook with and it attracts beaucoup black swallowtail butterflies.  After watching the wasps suck the caterpillars down like Lady and the Tramp eating spaghetti, I saved one and have been raising it in a terrarium.  Henry (soon to be Henrietta) started his chrysalis last night.  Very cool endeavor.


Video of the butterflies

Because I like birds! 


American Kestrel (Falco sparverius) by Karen L. Sirna.




There is a family of kestrels that lives in my neighborhood and hunts the field behind my house for lizards and grasshoppers and such.  Ours are much plainer being desert birds.


Got this shot of one hovering over my backyard in the wind.
