A couple of weeks ago Emily and I went away for a long weekend in paradise. The following are some images around Oahu, Hawaii where Emily and I went on three great hikes, snorkeled twice, and to top it off – I got to photograph a wedding! I’d love to go back and enjoy the warmth, the ocean, the culture, the food. But mostly at this moment I’m just craving some Matsumoto Hawaiian Shave Ice.
What was wholly unexpected was that now, if one were to ask, I would say that what stuck out to me most were the trees. Sure, the ocean was beautiful, no question about that. But I couldn’t stop looking up! Take away #2, everyone in Hawaii just seemed so incredibly friendly. People would want to chat with us and my radar would go up, like, ‘what do they want?’ But no, they simply wanted to chat and be kind. It took some getting used to. Who knows when I’ll return to Oahu. But I hope it’s soon.
