Project Black #2 & Sky Watch Friday

About a week ago, with no idea that Project Black was coming, I began exploring silhouettes & shadows. Deep, dark, black shadows. Now, on this end of the island the best shadows come out to play about sunset, and they need a light source for contrast, so please note that each of these photos also qualifies for Sky Watch Friday.

Project Green: Classroom Style

PROJECT GREEN: TAKE SEVEN

Project Green began with Anna of Anna Carson’s Photography.

My tired tootsies, cooling on the green tile floor,
shoe-less and resting in the aftermath of a field trip.

K.K.’s favorite crayons.
I don’t know why he chose three greens,
but I am glad he did!

And from the shorelines all around Oahu —

A Tsunami Warning Siren.

These sirens are tested monthly (I wonder if the bird knows that yet?) The first of April when the sirens went off, I was standing outside near a line of 1st graders. One child, excited, exclaimed, “What is that? What is that?” Another child answered matter-of-factly, “Oh don’ worry. Is jus’ the Suetommy siren. My momma tol’ me.”

AND — incase you were wondering where I was today …

We went swimming in a lagoon, teased some coral dwellers, ate in an outdoor restaurant, watched some whales, and enjoyed a sunset on Sunset Beach.

Here is a view of the rock and coral wall that forms the barrier around the lagoon. If you look closely, you can see a bit of water pouring over the wall.
