A successful blog must give its readers something they want.  The most successful blogs I follow provide useful advice of some kind.  Food blogs with good recipes do very well.  We all like to eat.  Some photography blogs provide advice on how to take better pictures, some aspect of the process like using Photoshop, or gear reviews.

I sit here and post the best possible photographs that I can produce.  Many are a product of my extensive travels which would be difficult for most people to duplicate, so I am certainly not giving advice by example.  What is it that one derives while looking at a bunch of web sized photographs?  Probably there is an entertainment factor, but I hope there is more.  Is it food for thought or some emotional reaction?  One follower tells me viewing my work provides relief from chronic pain…

Hawaii is the land of endless beaches.  There isn’t a lot to do, but going to the beach is enough for most Hawaiians.  A lot of these were captured in Kona, but a few were from further North.

South Point is about 60 miles South of Kona.  It is the Southernmost point in the USA.  Some believe the Polynesians landed here 3,000 years ago.  The wind blows a lot and in the same direction as you can see from the shape of the tree.

The day started out with the typical oversized Hawaiian breakfast. I then headed south  stopping at a few beaches before reaching Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park where the abstract photos of a fish pond were captured.   A nearby beach is popular with divers and snorkelers.

Less than two weeks after returning from Hong Kong, I headed halfway back across the Pacific to the Big Island of Hawaii.  These photos were captured in the area around Kona.  Stay tuned as there are more on the way.
