Also saw some small plants among grass and moss.  Looked kind of like a miniature forest.  Snapped a basic shot with the 16-35, then decided to try some freelensing for the first time.  Not bad, but I need more practice.

I also came across these two fun-loving and gorgeous pups when we got to the little pond.  Bruce and Molly - both about one year old, Australian mix.  Bruce was loving the water.  Molly kinda wasn’t having it.

Wow.  I haven’t been on here for a while.  Bout time I start being a bit more active.

Went on a hike this past Monday with a couple of awesome friends.  It was a shorter day than my previous hikes, but still a lot of fun.  Hopefully the next one we’ll have more time to spend at the water.

I love that my dogs are so well-behaved and patient.

Day 237: “Ready To Go”
Got an early morning shoot tomorrow morning.  Borrowed some gear from a friend to make sure I had everything I might need.

Day 235: “8 Years”
Tonight Dawn and I went to Makawao Steak House for our 8th year anniversary dinner.  8 years…it doesn’t feel like 8 years has gone by.  I suppose that means I’ve enjoyed myself.  I guess I can keep her around a little longer.

Day 234: “High(er) Capacity”
I’ve been wanting to go to the gun range more often than, oh, once a year.  And after our last visit, I realized that I really need more magazines so that I can better utilize the 20-minute firing rounds.  The mag only takes a few seconds to load, but it really does kind of kill my momentum.  So I went out and bought two more mags.  I got them in a higher capacity than the 8-round mag my gun came with, but unfortunately, Hawaii being the anti-freed… anti-gun state that it is, the largest magazine you can legally own for a handgun is 10-round capacity.  So I get two more rounds per mag.  With all three filled, I can have a nice long 28-shot streak.  Not bad, I suppose.  I’d probably reload each mag once within the 20-minute round to allow me a 56-shot firing round.  And all things considered…I dunno if I could afford to blast off more than 56 rounds every 20 minutes.
That is…until I buy all my ammo loading tools…

Day 233: “Unusual Clouds”
Another example of the wires killing my shot.  Oh well.  The odd clouds still  make for an interesting focal point.  I’ve never seen clouds quite like that before.  I’ve seen those stringy-type of clouds, but usually among a huge collection of them.  Never just a couple floating around other, more puffy clouds.
Also, is it just me, or does it seem like they’re trying to form the Pizza Hut logo?

Day 232: “Wired”
The wires in front of my house have annoyed me since we moved here…but now they’re just starting to piss me off.  There have been many times when I’m sitting down, watching something or playing on my phone and I look outside and I see some gorgeous scene right in front of me.  But these wires…they make getting a good picture difficult, if not impossible.  And by the time I move down the street to a better vantage point, the scene has gone.
