World of WearableArt, 11/29/15

All I can say is  wow!
Here is the link to WOW World of WearableArt. We are fortunate that Wellington, New Zealand is sharing their very creative/extraordinary pieces: their site shares that the human body is the canvas and that fashion/art/theater collide.

It was intriguing to see the 3 videos of the actual fashion show which does incorporate theater. I just grabbed one shot. (Actually 2 videos/screens are the same)

This is "Hands Off", 1998 done by Mark Crocker, received 2nd place for Bizarre Bra Section (science fiction and art nouveau inspired this bra)

There are more to see. I hope you get to see this in person. 
The showing is from Oct. 3, 2015-  Feb. 1, 2016

Blue Angels, 1017 and Lanai Lookout/Kokohead Botanical, 11/11/15

Life is good but sometimes there is not enough time for everything. This is a collections of photos I did with Derek and Milton S.

Blue Angels, 10/17/15...
This is definitely a challenging photo event for many reasons. One being that there is a long wait before the Blue Angels perform however going early is helpful with getting a parking space.

Here are some of the shows before the Blue Angels. I am happy to say the pilot is a lady. She started this career later in life. It was a joy to see her fly and do her tricks.

There were other parachuters performing.

This guy was amazing. He did a lot of twirls.

Voila, the Blue Angels.
Did I mention challenging to capture them. Yup - so I am sharing these 2 to show, yes I was there.

Number 5 trains to fly upside down.
I forgot to mention, Steve also was with us.

Lanai Lookout, 11/11/15...
So happy that on Veteran's Day, the weather was perfect.

Looking the other directions, a very green Kokohead.

Although this bird is not in focus, I was happy to have it fly across. I tweaked this photo by putting a gradient in the sky since it was too bright.

Kokohead Botanical, 11/11/15...

Most of the plumeria trees were bare so I was happy with the above plumerias.

We certainly had fun. Look forward to another outing, Derek and Milton.

EOH at Lyon's Arboretum, 11/7/15

In lieu of a club picnic, Connie planned a photo shoot at Lyon's Aboretum and lunch at Tree Tops.  All good except the weather - we basically stayed near the entrance area since the rain was off and on.  It was fun using the 50 mm lens and a rented Canon 6D camera.  

Thanks Steve for holding the leaf on the right so I could capture the unfurling leaf.

Tree Tops was enjoyed by all.  We laugh that this club, Eyes of Hawaii, enjoy meals together.
