Wear and Tear


Last impressions from Hawaii when we were there recently for my daughter's wedding on June 1.

A tough row to hoe (on Waikiki Beach)!

[Today I fly back to Atlanta.]

The life of a "for hire" long board in this place must be painful and short, but with brief moments of wild climactic passion when a competent client and a perfect wave come together.
A beautiful, unusual holiday "snap", Ginnie.

Ontzettend mooie schaduwen over het board, the play of shadows over this board is very beautiful, this is a great picture with the perfect light.
It breaks my heart though to see these 'rentals' so torn up..it seems: it's not mine so I can do whatever I please with it'.
Have a safe flight home.

Wonderfully vivid, and beautifully crisp. That has seen some action.

Makes me want to just grab that board and head out to sea. Nice capture Ginnie.
The blue colour that was clear with the game of two corners diagonal that was good.
A photograph technically DOF that was good.
Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia. I love it blue Ginnie!
I especily like: the sky, the blue colour of the board and the shwadows on the board - all this elements forming a nice composition smile

Ginnie, great - clear, crisp and good framing. Also the shadows on the board - as always you have a very good eye for the situation.

Like the shadows on the board and the diagonal composition. You get the feeling that this one is on its last legs!

I see, wild lady, your passion for surf-boards. Astrid and Vintage are right with their remark, I like the shades of blue, an I wish you a safe flight over the clouds (not over the waves)!

A bit worn, a bit weatherbeaten, fine colours and a good composition Ginnie.

I'm seeing lots of duct and electrical tape. Wonder if they have it holding their bodies together too!

Great shot with the shadows and vivid colors.

This is nice. Makes me want to go and surf although i don't know how and i can't swim. We should 'talk' about the framed print. i was serious. smile
Ginnie Hart: Knowing how to swim would probably be important, Bandoras! grin

If you're serious (you really flatter me!), let me know what you have in mind. I will be on vacation starting tomorrow till Sunday but will be able to get it done for you next week. What makes the most sense is to get the print made for you and then mail just the print so you can frame it however you want?

Love the pattern of the shadows on the board. Great colors!
Nice one Ginnie. I like the shadow on the board thing.
You chose a good shooting angle Ginnie...and what a potent slab of blue...richard
Beautiful Hawaii, on my list of places to visit when I retire. I love this composition with the blue surf board, sand and ocean. A lovely beach setting that would go well on the cover of a brochure.

I like the close in, dramatic color and form in this shot. The angle you chose for the shot makes the angles work out very well too. Fine image.

I love the shadows on the board. Superb shot smile
Nice colours and composition Ginnie, you done the right thing by splitting the horizon.
I like the intensity of the blue surf board, and how it contrasts against the other blues
