Took a break from sorting out the mystery that is all things SEO to enjoy a farewell luncheon with bff, BF... just a few weeks away from relocating into the heart of the media world beast, NYC. She will be missed and I cop to no small amount of envy. The confines of this rock are, for the first time in 32 years, beginning to get to me. I long for the ability to be able to, again, jump in a car and drive for days, experience cutting-edge art, music and culture involving no skirts made of grass.

Over the years we have snarled, gnashed teeth & collaborated on some excellent projects for some equally excellent clients. I'm hoping her new urban digs will include a couch for my weary head when I visit the city. Aloha Oe, B!

All jealousy aside, preparations are finalized for my own escape from one paradise to another. In three weeks time I will again wing my way to SE Asia... a month of assignments, marathon antique hunting and, with any luck at all, more assignments. On the current itinerary are Taipei, Bali, Jogyakarta, Surabaya, Madura,Myanmar and the good lord only knows where else I will end up.

Summer's Gone... Blogging Is Dead?

Summer has come & gone with barely an opportunity to acknowledge, much less enjoy it. Things around this island seem to be settling down now that the summer visitors have returned home to jobs, school and normalcy. I've been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to travel around the state on behalf of a handful of mainland publications and racked up a few good projects for major companies doing business here in Hawaii... Hawaiian Host Chocolates, Kiwanis International and Tommy Bahama to name just a few... and of course, there's been plenty to keep me busy with my unpaid passion of relaunching and operating, along with a fantastic crew of dedicated, talented and passionate individuals, our little island community FM radio station with a global reach.

Over the past month or so, I've noticed that many of my favorite photography bloggers have all but disappeared. The best of the aggregate sites for good photography blogging, The Photography Post, has disappeared altogether. Others seem to have moved the bulk of their online activities to alternative social media sites like Instagram, Facebook and others. Having resisted it for years, even I have thrown my hat into the Instagram pool. I find Instagram far less intrusive and far less creepy than what I perceive Facebook to have become.

Preparations are well underway for another project in S.E. Asia which will occupy an entire month. Bali, Java, Taipei & Taiwan are on the agenda and hopes are high that there will also be time to spend a few days exploring Myanmar (formerly Burma). Departure date is planned for October 9th. If anyone is in need of images or assignments from that part of the world, be sure to hit me up...
