Surf's Up


This is a short series of impressions from Hawaii when we were there recently for my daughter's wedding on June 1.

I couldn't resist this for Friday!
This was taken from our 15th-floor hotel balcony, looking down on Waikiki Beach.


[Today I'm in Atlanta, flying to Amsterdam tomorrow.]

This is great! Love the perspective from which you captured this.
Very creative...nice image!
Ginnie Hart: It was so fun to watch her walk by from so far away and then get out the camera and zoom in on her. smile Thanks, Marcie.
Very cool, Ginnie. Great perspective for this shot.
Ginnie Hart: It sure was fun to zoom in on her, Red Pen. smile Thanks.

Terrific image Ginnie, great perspective. I have enough trouble juggling the handbag at times, let alone a surfboard at the same time
Ginnie Hart: I was thinking the same thing, Aussie, when I saw her purse up on the screen. Never saw it while taking the picture. How fun. Thanks.

That's a great graphical shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It was really fun to zoom in on her, Martin, from so high up. smile Thanks.

I like the way the water invades the frame and almost catches the surfer.
Ginnie Hart: I had another image I almost used where the water did NOT come in like this but decided I liked this one better. So thanks, Larry, for agreeing. smile

Fabulous, Ginnie.
The common two-legged long-board, in its natural habitat.
Ginnie Hart: And a VERY natural habitat it was, Ray. smile Thanks.

Een geweldig goede foto om het weekend mee te beginnen.
When I saw this as a thumbnail I thought of Delfs Blue....this is a ontzettend goede foto, meer dan je weet, a great composition, great perspective, I had to laugh at Aussie's comment.
Een goede vlucht naar Nederland, mijn lieve vriend.
Ginnie Hart: I knew that design reminded me of something, Astrid! Why didn't I remember what??!! I'm quite sure there is a Delft surfboard to be seen somewhere in the world...maybe even in Hawaii! Wouldn't THAT be fun to see!

Thanks for your wishes for my travel tomorrow. I was finally able to get a direct flight, as you know, so I'll be there before I know it! See you soon on YOUR side of the pond!

Ginnie Hart: Awww. You know how to make my day. smile Thanks, Fotografa.
Excellent and no sign of vertigo!
Ginnie Hart: HA! No vertigo from THIS Musketeer, Bill. grin I LOVED looking down every day to see what was happening down on the beach. Thanks.

I love the position of her left foot and the water. The clear and the foamy.
Ginnie Hart: It felt like the ocean was telling a different story every time I looked down, Helen. I loved that POV! smile Thanks.

A nice perspective and an unusual capture of a surfer! I like the 'runners' of the breakers and the shadow of the surf-board!
Ginnie Hart: That surfboard shadow was what I most loved about this image, Philine...beside the design on the surfboard facing me. smile Thanks.

Great angle. I love the diagonal composition, the shadow and that bit of palm in the corner.

what isn't there to like about this shot? I particularly like the perspective though
Ginnie Hart: You are such a sweetheart, Padraig! Thank you kindly.

Ginnie I always thought the surfer was ment to ride on top of the board not underneathgrin

This is a great shot and well spotted from the 15th floor. I would have been looking out not downtonguetongue
Ginnie Hart: This was especially for YOU, Musketeer! I figured you, of all people, would get a kick outta it. smile Thanks.
Great capture Ginnie. I like the diagonal composition here!
Ginnie Hart: I did it for you, Richard. smile Thanks.

Cool - the new way of surfing ;-) - Nice framing and good compostition.
Ginnie Hart: We don't always think about how the surfers transport their boards from here to there. Now we know. grin Thanks, Klaus.
Lovely capture. I just hope the surfboard's not too heavy!
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing they're pretty heavy, Kunle...and clumsy! Thanks.

A unique shot!! Really wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: I loved seeing the world pass by from up there, Ruth! smile A totally different perspective. Thanks.
A bit of humour on a Friday morning is great! I did a double take till I saw that stark white leg.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Like I said, Mary, I couldn't resist it. Have a great weekend. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zohre.
Cool perspective - I have no idea how you can stand on one of these, but just looking at this makes me wanna go on holiday....now....one more week then... wink
Ginnie Hart: WOW. So holiday is coming! It'll be here before you know it, Aksel. Congratulations. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: You and I both have overhead views today, Don. Like minds and all, you know. smile Thanks.

What a vantage point! Beautiful colors on that surf board. What a wonderful capture.
Ginnie Hart: It was so fun to zoom in on her, Sherri. I didn't even feel like a Peeping Tom. smile Thanks.

Amazing perspective and detail. An excellent photograph
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Paul. Thank you. smile
This would not have had this impact side on Ginnie, the looking down angle gives it great strength, especially as it is on a diagonal plane. Have a good flight.
Ginnie Hart: I think you're right, Brian. We don't always get this kind of view, so it feels so different when we do. Thank you for your flight best wishes.
Great capture, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sweetie! smile
The shooting angle is excellent... and I really like the surf patterns/textures.
richard and the shadows and the walking feet and the foot prints. Oh! ... and I wonder what it looks like in b and w.
richard
Ginnie Hart: HA! You tickle me to death, Richard. I bet B&W would be fabulous! smile
brilliant work
another post card material
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to make my day, DrAW. Thanks.
it is true, unconventional angle makes this composition very interesting, love it
Ginnie Hart: It's always fun to get a different angle, PT! Thanks.
Where were you to take this one? Up in the tree? Ha! Ha! Oh, for that sand...
Ginnie Hart: Just up on the 15th floor, I swear, Alex. smile I almost felt like a peeping tom with the zoom! smile Thanks.

did you know there are only a few places left where the surfer still needs to use the long board ! I really like this shot Gin, you should try selling this on !
Ginnie Hart: I have no clue about these boards, Johnny, long or short! But I do like the idea of making money on it! grin Thanks, Bro.
There are so many good things about this onesmile
Ginnie Hart: That makes me smile, Nigel. smile Thanks.

I think the photo itself paid for the stay in that hotel! Incredible shot. I say print and frame this large! Incredible.....
