Met up with Dion and Jamie to snap some new pictures of our cars. Dion recently installed these amazing white and amber LED DRLs. Love the new look.

On the second to last day of our trip, we visited Sandy Beach at Koko Head one last time. We’d been there several times during our trip, but the ocean simply wasn’t interested in making waves. This day, however, delivered.

Seemingly all of Honolulu was out that day. With the beaches packed, and the waters full of surfers- I waded out into the water, waited for the perfect swell and managed to get this guy all alone.

Fisherman

Perched upon the wet, slippery rocks from large waves crashing all around- this guy braved it all to do some fishing.


Jump

The setting sun over Waimea Bay, Oahu. As I lay there on the beach expecting a rather mundane sunset, a bank of large, dark clouds rolled in. I made the 200 yard dash for the rental car to grab my camera- boy, am I glad I did.

Alienscape

One of my favorite spots during the trip to Oahu was The Lanai. I loved getting lost in the seemingly Alien landscape- only to be brought back to Earth by a splash of saltwater from the adjacent ocean.


Vacation Time!

It dawned on me earlier this year- I haven’t had a real vacation in over five years. Last week, me and three friends set off for a week in Oahu. I returned with a decent tan, and 30 gigs of photos.


I know Mike Kippen

Taken at the Leavenworth Drive in Leavenworth, WA a few weeks ago. Mike snapped a great portrait of me last year- it was time to return the favor.
