Happy Halloween! I remember it always being fun to go out trick or treating and loading up on candy, then came the year when people started saying "Aren't you to old for this?", no more candy for me. Now I just buy it...woohoo!

This pumpkin spotted on Main Street in Disneyland.

Akaka Falls

I thought this was the most impressive waterfall we saw while in Hawaii this past summer. It's the closest we got to a large waterfall and it is one of the largest waterfalls we saw. It it located on the Hilo side of the Big Island and if you are drive from one side to the other it is not much of a detour. I forgot the exact highway numbers but I remember its location being on the rental car map. Check it out, no hiking required.

Painted Church (St. Benedict's Catholic Church)

A few of my friends know that I like to wonder around while driving and getting lost is ok because I might find something interesting and new. This past August while looking for coffee farms in Kona on the big island of Hawaii we came across a blue sign that said "Painted Church"; This got my attention so I made the turn and started heading towards it wondering what we would see. We were surprised to find out it is a functioning catholic church and as you can see from the picture all the walls and ceiling are painted with murals. It is an interesting place to visit especially if you are checking out the local coffee farms.

Here is one of the better shots I got during the fire dance at the Luau Amy and I went to on our last night on Maui. He put on quite a show and was a great way to end the evening.

geotag and flickr

I discovered a neat feature on flickr this week called geotag; you can drag your picture to the spot it was taken at on a map! I think this could be a great tool for trip planning in the future; I will be able to check out picture for a place i will be visiting and possibly find sights not listed in a tour book.

I've noticed the lack of tagged pictures in Hawaii so I'll be adding some of my favorites from our trip in August. I'm shooting to get the pictures up this weekend.

where are the new posts?

ok, ok I haven't posted anything for almost a year now but that doesn't really matter since I am the only one reading this. ;) Reminds me of the Sonic commercial where the guy says he is going to blog about his experience at Sonic because his readers will find it interesting. His friend points out that his mom is his only reader.

well here is the new plan. I am going to photo blog at least once a day; if there is a day without a post I will make up for that post the next day. I want to have a new image each day. more details will come shortly.
