Diamond Head

Sylvia and I travelled to Honolulu in 2008, and while out on a boat I photographed Diamond Head, the famous volcanic cone. Before this trip, I'd always been a little skeptical about Hawaii; judging only by advertising and popular culture, it had always seemed like an over hyped tourist trap to me. But once we landed, I realized immediately how beautiful the place really is. Our hotel featured an open-air restaurant overlooking the beach, and I loved sipping virgin strawberry daquiris while alternating between reading a book and watching the waves and the people, shore birds skittering around my feet and across my table.

Next time, I think we'll try Maui.
