This is a view of an old, spherical water tank. It’s used for collecting rain water off the roof of the small building next to it. I liked the peeling paint and patina of the rust on the tank.
On a walk at Kiholo, I noticed a bit of a ripe smell in the air. When I got to the top end of the lagoon I found the reason for it. The shoreline was littered with clumps of these dead fish. There must have been several hundred of them all told. I don’t know the reason for the stranding, but the scene reminded me of images of fish markets or still life paintings.
I was in the water, looking up at the lighthouse north of Lapakahi, and trying to get a photo of the sun behind the light. I was swimming back and forth, to get the sun and light lined up, while the sea whooshed back and forth in a quite shallow area. Results were mixed as they say, but I liked this image which has a bit of a Halloween feel to it.

Driving home on the mountain road, I noticed the late afternoon light making interesting patterns on the ocean below, so I pulled over and snapped a few photos.
This sign, on a quiet back road, is a bit of Hawaiian pidgin, a local version of English that is still widely used. Not too hard to figure out what this sign means.
There aren’t a lot of houses around Kiholo Bay, but those that are range from older, rustic shacks to palatial millionaires’ compounds. This building is solidly in the rustic end of the range.
Little bubbles clump together on the underside of the water’s surface.
This is the sign at the landward end of the breakwater that protects Kawaihae harbor. The breakwater is just over half a mile long and, as you’d expect, people rigorously respect the warning to stay off this dangerous structure. Just kidding. We’re talking people here. They fish from the structure on a regular basis and, as far as I can tell, nobody seems too bothered about that. This is an early morning view.
