Travel Photo: Hawaiian Daydreams
I shot this on Hawaii, the Big Island.
These two chairs were perched on a little peninsula of black lava hovering about 25 feet above the ocean. Each morning, you could witness folks frantically vying for this prime spot on the beach. It brought a smile to my face as I witnessed this daily display of human behavior.
When I’m out on a photo shoot, I am always looking for ways to bring human emotion into my photographs. Here, the man is captured by the beautiful scene in a quiet trance, while his wife is busily trying to get the cap off of her bottle of sunscreen.
The temperature was a perfect 80 degrees. There were no clouds in the skies. If you closed your eyes, you were immediately transported to a very still place as the gentle ocean breeze caressed your face.
Isn’t this a place where you’d like to spend the day?
