Hawaii photos and my website

Unread postby bakubo » Fri Nov 21, 2008 2:26 am

bossel in this thread requested that I post some Hawaii photos:

http://www.photoclubalpha.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1369

But, I thought it better to not hijack that thread. I'll post them in this new thread instead. I have a few in this post, but many more can be seen in the Hawaii folder in my gallery:

http://www.bakubo.com

I invite anyone to take a look at the photos in various folders in my gallery (not just the Hawaii photos) and make comments. :)

Here are a few Hawaii photos:

I've been through your galleries a few times. I'm always inspired. and in awe of your travel history.

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

Yes, I like to travel, but I don't really spend all that much money on it since I prefer to travel close to the ground, carrying a backpack, staying at guesthouses/small hotels/hostels/etc., using public transportation, and so on. Lately the plane tickets are more expensive because of the fuel charge and baggage fees. Both were added when the price of fuel was so high, but now that it has dropped to half the charges are still there. Like new taxes, whenever new fees get added it is unlikely that they will ever go away. :(

By the way, has anyone here been to the Philippines? I found a pretty good price for a plane ticket to Manila from Hawaii and, I think, traveling in the Philippines is probably pretty inexpensive. My wife is away visiting her family for awhile so I am feeling bored. Any thoughts about the Philippines? Interesting place? I feel the urge to do some photography in a new place.

That was my favourite way to travel before I got married... i'd just show up in places that interested me. Wifey would be horrified if I ever tried to take her on a trip like that. I never really flew anywhere though. always driving. Now I HAVE to tavel for work .. and I hate it. I spent a week in Chicago earlier this month and never had a chance to get out to take pictures.

I usually have no particular plans or itinerary when I travel. Sometimes I even only have a one-way plane ticket so that I have even more flexibility. I love road trips too. In 1999 we set off on a 9-week road trip throughout the western U.S. We visited pretty much all the national parks and many national monuments, sometimes tent camping, sometimes staying in motels. We stayed off of the interstate highways as much as possible and took lots of backroads visiting small towns, etc. In those 9 weeks we drove 12,500 miles/20,000 kilometers -- my recollection is that gasoline was about $1/gallon then. :) We have done many road trips of several weeks, but that was the longest.

In a previous life I worked in the computer industry for about 20 years and during the 1980s and 1990s I did a fair amount of business travel. I usually tried to arrive a couple of days early and then after the business stay a couple more days before heading home. That way I generally had 3-4 free days. When I lived in Silicon Valley that is what I did on trips to Boston, Seattle, New York City, Chicago, Austin, Nashua, etc. On a business trip to the south of France in 1994 I arrived 2 days early and then after the week long meeting was over I traveled in Italy for 4 weeks.

Thanks, Sonolta, for the Philippines info. With all the economic mess and the stock markets crashing it is prudent to consider spending money carefully, I think. I am not sure I want to use the money right now so I need to continue thinking it over.

I'm liking that surf-board shelter in the last set. It's unusual and honest.

Thanks, Doc! I tend to like getting people photos better while I am walking around, but sometimes do a bit of nature stuff too. That last photo was taken with the A700 and then I converted to B&W using the channel mixer.

Thanks. I thought it was sort of funny because I saw her get out of the water, carry her surfboard onto the beach, and then get under it to try and stay out of the rain. She was already wet. :) I suppose she was a bit cold though. Actually, I was soaked too. I was walking around in the rain with my A700 in a plastic bag. I would take it out from time to time to get some shots and try not to let it get too wet. I didn't have an umbrella. :)
