Christmas 2006 @ Jon Pierre's on Maui


••••••••••• Wednesday, December 27, 2006 12:54:33 AM Pacific/Honolulu •••••••••••

It was a happy one for me thanks to friends calling me up and inviting me... mostly Bonnie, Jason, Ocean and Kachina. Since there was entertainment, I never did get to play my guitar but I did play with light along with some of the guests!

Most of the images were taken without looking through the viewfinder. I was just chronicling and mindlessly catching the action, often acting on a whim. The shot of Fred swooping Terri was an amazing stroke of timing. I had been shooting the dancers with the lens pre focused (so the autofocus would not spin its wheels in the low light and moving bodies). I was watching the dancers and had the camera sitting on the lounge next to me. When I saw Fred about to dip the darling, I swept up the camera with one hand (right, even though I am lefty) and clicked the shutter after pointing it in the right direction. I nailed that sucker!

I met some new people and chatted with old friends... singing harmony with the band in a few spots... which included Jason and Bonnie singing lead. They are such great singers! I had my shaker egg working overtime, and managed not to over eat. I was warmed by several ladies who seemed to be more comfortable with me than the last time I saw them.

I was delighted to see Nixy who was hanging on Pi. God she's got a great ass! (not to mention the rest of her). She wanted some pix of she and Pi together. I was happy to oblige. So many ask me for copies of the photos I've taken and not one has offered to compensate me for my time and talent. So this year I am asking for payment for images other than my "signed ones" .
