T shirt, watches, cell phone
I was thinking of not blogging but then realized it has been a pretty actioned packed week in my boring life. I figure I would write something. We had our second airbnb guests come. They we’re a couple from Arizona who we’re coming to Oahu for a short trip before jumping over to the big island for some R&R. They were really nice and I haven’t heard anything good or bad from them since they left. No news is good news I suppose.
I also ordered the camera I have wanted for a long time. I begun saving back in January. I got the Canon t4i with 18-135 stm lens. I just ordered it this week along with a Opteka x-grip, monopod and RODE external video microphone. The Opteka is a U shaped video stabilization rig. I got it because it allows you to get down low and walk while minimizing the shake of the camera. I really like the shots of Kai where I am at his eye level and I think this will allow me to get some great footage. Would also be useful if I wanted to shoot skateboarding as well. Really excited to get shooting with it and shoot some new video and stills.
Also, We’re going to Mexico! I am so excited. Haven’t been to Cabo in about 15 years. Super excited to see Marcus, surf cabo and have some battered fish tacos. I love being in Hawaii but I haven’t really been off island for over a year and am due for a trip. Lastly it has been pumping here on the North Shore. 8-10 foot the last 2 days. I have been in town working but it is supposed to still be 6-8 tomorrow so I am going to get a good nights sleep and get out there tomorrow.
