Dennis Kamakahi

04 Aug 2007 11 302
We had the great experience of attending a concert by father and son Hawaiian musicians, Dennis and David Kamakahi. This concert took place in 2007 during the day at a shopping mall on Maui. Musicians and dancers often perform in these venues. We were able to get some good photos of the event. Sadly, Dennis Kamakahi passed away in 2014. See: swansonphotos.com/kamakahi.html

Monument Valley Highway

21 Apr 2014 24 12 326
A pretty famous stretch of road. There were many folks pulled over to the side to take photos. Some of the more adventuresome were lying on their backs on the center line of the highway, trying to get dramatic perspective. Anyway, I had to get some pictures as I drove this stretch of road, too.

Alcan Highway

08 May 2020 10 2 306
Taken along the "golden triangle" in Yukon. This is the famous AlCan Highway, built during WW II. This photo was taken in 2000, during our visit to Alaska and the surrounding area. Scanned from color print using GIMP.

Almost Huge Moon

07 Dec 2017 5 305
Taken as a test of a 300mm lens on the Panasonic Lumix GX85 (effective 600mm). Hand-held. This was taken in Arizona the day after a "maximum moon", so it is "almost huge". This is more interesting to me, because you can see shadows of craters, etc, which are not so clear in a full-on completely lit moonface. Processed with GIMP.
