Memorial Day

A memorial day in Hawai‘i nei.
We honor those who gave their lives for peace.
who gave their lives for love.
who gave their lives for liberty.
who gave their lives for family.
who gave their lives for freedom.

Thank you brave soldiers of life and liberty. thank you.

Photos are from the Mayor's Memorial Day Service at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and the Lantern Floating Hawai‘i festival at Ala Moana Beach Park. Photos were taken while on assignment for the Ka Leo O Hawai‘i.

my day at the lab

Kenji Yamazaki and other students from ART206 work on finishing their mattes for their final project.Exposure details: Canon SD870IS, 1/80 sec, f/2.8, ASA400 at 4.6mm

So last week, the ART206 Final Project entitled "Body in Crisis" was due. I believe i must've spent at least a good 20-30 Hours in there. Above is a photo of a bunch of us trying to finish out matting on Tuesday night. The day RIGHT before the project was due. I'm going to be totally honest. I really enjoyed the class. I think it was the only class I didn't skip a day this semester. (Definitely NOT a good thing though...) Which is why I think I'm taking ART207 next semester. Stan Tomita is the professor again, and I definitely know hes got a lot that he can teach me. So I look forward to it. John, Cameron, and Gabe will be in my class again next semester. Looks to be a lot of fun. Stay tuned. Once I get a scanner up and running I'm going to try and post the prints I've made in the class.
