The Wind Was Craaaazzzzzy!
Yesterday was one of those picture-perfect days and I did nothing constructive or interesting. Well....I made some French Bread, but really, on such a nice day, I should have been out and about.
So today I decided to head up to the North Shore and see if I could find some waves and surfers to photograph. Well the wind was crazy and the waves weren't all that wonderful. But it was still a great day to be out.
There were some surfers trying to catch waves, so I got a few shots--none of which were too successful. I spent a good deal of my time hunkered over my camera to protect it from being sandblasted when the wind blew particularly hard.
As usual, I did some people-watching.
This woman cracked me up! She was with her husband and three children. I can only imagine that this trip to Hawaii might be a trip of a lifetime for them. In my mind's eye I can see them saving for years to be able to get all 5 of them to the islands.
And there she is...taking pictures with her iPad!! I don't know~~it just seems so wrong to me.
But she seemed to be enjoying herself, so I guess that's really what matters. They'll probably have some great photos for their family album. I guess it beats taking photos with a flip-phone, and I've seen plenty of that too!
I decided to go home the long way which took me past the Byodo-In Temple.
This angle of the temple is even more beautiful when the sky is blue--but no such luck today.
