So much has changed in the last 25 years due to technology. Here's a fun topic I always wanted to do... Eating Out, Part 1: Choosing a place to eat...
The ocean is an amazingly beautiful place and the purpose of my column is to show you the beauty you can find just below the surface. Occasionally, though, a public service announcement is in order.
Mililani is special. It's one of places that people feel passionate about. Cool, quiet and away from the urban buzz - that's now they like it. It's a family-friendly neighborhood, where kids feel safe to grow up and parents stay after the younger generation flies away...
Color is Magic. It has power to change and transform places and emotions. It can attract or repel, make you feel excited or put you to sleep. Color is also science, and has been shown to have a profound effect on how you feel. What color makes you feel at home?
One of my favorite places to shoot macro photography is Three Tables on the north shore of Oahu. The window of opportunity for shooting here is slowly closing out as the winter swells loom ahead of us, but there may be some days when the ocean is flat enough to allow a photographer to have a little fun.
Insurance is something no one likes to think about - until disaster strikes. It's something you pay good money for, but you can only win by losing.

Now the sea has run flat and Waimea Bay, which during the December looks like a great place to commit suicide, now resembles a calm bathtub. Now is the time to explore all the nooks and crannies that will soon be inaccessible again.
Moving to a smaller home is one of life's passages. For some it is that empty nest, after the kids have left home. For many others, it's retirement. Downsizing also affects people who move from the country into the city, or find themselves suddenly single, or experience a financial setback or another lifestyle transition...
I recently gave a talk on freedive photography to the Eyes of Hawaii photography club on the underwater fauna of Hawaii. It was a lot of fun and I had a lot of followup questions that got me to thinking. One member asked me for advice on tide pools, one of my favorite places to shoot macro photography.
