News of the Day

Check out the latest posting at Rob Haggart's A Photo Editor Blog. PhotoShelter, an online stock agency, has announced a new stock photography event to take place on July 20, 2008 called "Shoot the Day". Sounds like a fun project and I think I will sign up and get involved. You will find all the details here.  It looks like sign-up space is limited, so get crackin' to be involved.

If you are a fan of Hawaiian Music, you won't want to miss the the 17th annual Ki Ho'Alu Slack Key Music Festival at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center's outdoor A&B Amphitheater.  The show is this Sunday, June 22 and starts at 2pm and runs until... well, you know how hawaiians hate to break up a party. Bring a blanket, bring a low beach chair, bring the kids and bring a smile as you join lots of other slack key fans under the hawaiian sun and listen to some of the island's best entertainers doing their thing. This years line-up includes Hapa, Makana, Led Kaapana, Dennis Kamakahi, John Cruz, Brother Noland Conjugacion and lots of other really talented musicians. For more info, go here. There will be lots of ono food and drink available (no coolers please!) for sale. It's a great way to spend a beautiful afternoon in Hawaii. Did I mention that admission is FREE?

The images above are taken from previous Ki Ho'Alu events. The top is the cover of the MACC's magazine Centerpiece and features a shot of Makana performing that I took at the festival a couple of years ago. The second pic is a crowd scene from last years event. I'll see you there!
