Hopeful whale photos, 2/4/18

2 comments
Derek, Dewey and myself went to Makapu'u Lighthouse in hopes of photographing whales. I was not successful - my 70-200mm did not have the reach. Derek got them with his 600mm - so happy for him.







We did have fun - lots of joking.

Foster Garden with the 6 of us (Derek, Milton S., Robert, Walter, Dewey).

Milton S. let me use his Fuji Macro 62 - a 80mm lens on my Fuji-X-T10. Thank you Milton, I wish I could afford that lens. 






Dewey let me use his Tamaron 10mm-24mm lens on my Canon T5i. Thanks Dewey for your tips. It really was amazing how much I could capture. I also saw the difference between where I stood how much was in focus.






My 70-200 lens on my Canon T5i camera.
I did take a bunch of butterfly photos - I am happy I got at least 3 good ones.




We then zipped over to Good Day for Dim Sum. Walter, I am sure I ate your share since you had to leave. Thanks again Derek.

(Inside joke, my balls are bigger!)

As much we wanted to photograph whales - they were too far away to capture.  I personally could not see any.

The guys enjoyed Yummy's Korean Food. Since we were eating outside - I got myself a Bubbie's ice cream for lunch. Thanks again Derek for arranging our photo outing.

Lyon's Arboretum, 1/3/18

First of all, Happy New Year!

All of us: Derek, Milton S., Dewey and Curtis laughed a lot since we were trying to obtain bokeh balls. According to Wikipedia, Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."



Not all photos have bokeh balls.



This area had toads/frogs croaking softly like they were having a conversation; but we could not see them. We laughed as we were searching for them. We figured they were in the cracks of the rock wall.











Banana flowers, checked the internet and found out it blooms around 7 months  and can be eaten raw or cooked such as in salads, curries or soups.





Derek, I really liked this adventure - it really helped me check out the lighting. Our fun continued during lunch at O-Bok Restaurant at Manoa Market Place. We missed you there Dewey.

I will be back at work this Friday, thanks again everyone for having a photo day.
