Art Show Update!! Vintage Mauna Kea Prints! by Ethan Tweedie

My classmate at Parker School, Jonah Roll has made available two prints by his father (My photography teacher at Parker School) former Star Bulletin Chief Photographer Warren Roll.  Proceeds from these remastered 16x16 metal prints will go towards Parker School Scholarships.

Both images were taken in 1968, the first image is the summit of Mauna Kea with only one telescope (The University of Hawaii 0.6m) and the second print is of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel shortly after it opened.

I hope to see you at the Harbor Gallery in Kawaihae, Friday August 16th 2019 from 6pm to 8pm! Come talk story!

Waikiki 2019 First South Swell by Ethan Tweedie

I got back to Honolulu just in time for the first big South Swell, Waikiki Beach was going off at around 6 to 10 feet. Although the swell was inconsistent some nice sets rolled through and it was fun to fly the Mavic Pro 2 and get some shots of the surf below. You can’t beat the backdrop of the Royal Hawaiian!
