I took a trip on TheBoat w/ some Flickr peeps a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a couple of panorama’s of Honolulu shot from the ocean.
I also turned on my GPS tracker to geotag my photos. I overlayed the track on Google Earth and saved the screen shot.
Come join us for a photo walk around Downtown Honolulu on July 18th.
We will meet at 4:00 p.m. at the Iolani Palace front lawn. This has been one of the most popular locations for the Hawaii Flickr Meetup. After a short introduction we will take a stroll through downtown honolulu and Chinatown. We will end our photowalk at a yet to be determined restaurant in Downtown or Chinatown. For this reason I recommend that you park somewhere in Downtown/Chinatown and walk to Iolani Palace.
Here is a Google Map of the municipal parking lots in Chinatown. Their rates are probably the cheapest you will find in the downtown areas.

Last Sunday was the 2nd Annual Hawaii Geek Meet at Ala Moana Park. I met a lot of old online friends and found some new ones. Forgot to wear my Twitter shirt. Ate lots of food – BTW did anyone get a good pic of that hand cart full of pizza? And lastly I took lots of photos as you’ll soon see.
I busted out my hacked Canon A630 and stuck it on a tripod under a tree. Then I ran a time lapse script that took a shot every ten seconds for the whole event. All told, I took around 2000 photos that day. After I stitched the pics into a video, I couldn’t quite find the right geeky music that fits our little group. Then I remembered Twitter Me Gently by Matthew Ebel and everything sort of clicked together after that.
This past weekend was my first Hawaii Strobist meetup. I’ve never really gotten into flash photography because my pics never came out to my liking. After this photo shoot I may have to pick up a some new gear and try it more seriously.
Round Top Sunset Time Lapse
My friend Joe Philipson arranged for a Flickr meetup at Puu Ualakaa Park around sunset yesterday to hang out and practice time lapse photography. I’ve got a Canon A630 which I hacked with the CHDK firmware. I’ve tried stitching together time lapse photos before, but they never quite worked for me. I think I’m starting to ge the hang of it now.
Music for the video is “Restless for the Sun” by Jimmie Bratcher.
