eye on kauai

This week I want to honor the people who toil in the hot sun, hands in the dirt, to create things of beauty. I shot these photos April 18 at Kauai County Farm Bureau’s 20th annual Garden Fair at Kauai Community College.

Knuckle Head

I am happy to report that so far I’ve survived eight months of my MMA Boot Camp training. We have a full class for something that happens at 4:45 in the morning. And as many of our workouts have us pairing up, I’m motivated to keep up, since I will get paired up with someone […]

King Kong, Coral And Reef Revival

The ocean was my backyard while growing up: boiled lobsters by the dozen, fried manini and papio, and tako tentacles steamed in beer. Those were the days.
