# 258 Abandoned

| August 12, 2009

Thematic Photographic 62 – Abandoned Hosted by Carmi ABANDONED adj. Forsaken or deserted. This lonely bicycle sits outside Bilger Hall on the University of Hawaii Campus at Manoa.  I have passed by it many times wondering how it came to be abandoned.  Did the bike’s owner graduate to higher priced, classier transportation?  Or perhaps he […]

Thom, 2009. This photo was taken in my backyard during a Summer barbecue. This is my neighbor and blogging buddy, Thom. Thom is one of my favorite people here in Hawaii, but if anybody tells him I said that, I’ll deny it.

. Wipe Out, 2009 High winds, high waves, high adventure — Waikiki had them all on this day! The sea spray almost drowns a small sailboat as a surfer takes a dive. This photo was taken from the seawall in Queen Kapi’olani Beach Park.
