Photography and Mood – II

Expressing Mood in Images: Happy (in) Hawaii

While I often find myself capturing dark and dramatic subjects and stories, summer is just around the corner, actually, “officially” here for those in the U.S., since yesterday was Memorial Day. So, why not photograph fun and happy stories for a change?

Summer is my favorite season. Hawaii is one of my favorite places to be and to photograph. And while it’s always summer in Hawaii, here are a few images I took, many years ago, while on a trip to (Happy) Hawaii.

From Coconut Island, off the Big Island of Hawaii:

To jumping off cliffs:

To surfing and diving, feet up, into the crashing waves.

Images evoking a lighter mood often make us smile or even laugh. They remind us of happier times, if only for a moment.

So, Happy Summer! to you all, and, as always, thanks for stopping by!
