One of my bucket list photography items from my trip to Okinawa last year was to attempt a time lapse of the “Big Tank” at the Churaumi Aquarium. This is by far the BEST aquarium in the world and part of that is attributed to the huge piece of glass that makes up the main tank, which houses 3 whale sharks!
After dropping my wife and baby off at the hotel, I headed back to the aquarium with my 3 year old to do this time lapse. After I set up, he asked me to pick him up to watch and he promptly fell asleep. I shot for about an hour holding him and protecting my tripod from getting bumped (there were a few people there).
Make sure you head to Vimeo to watch this in HD as well!

I went to a party at a colleague’s house and he lives right on the edge of Big Lagoon State Park and Grand Lagoon in Pensacola. I didn’t have my camera that night for the sunset, but told him that I would be back soon… The next day I returned and shot this (among other) frames…

A few weeks back, I headed to Hawaii with a friend from work to catch up on flight hours. We travelled from Pensacola to Jacksonville for a flight that took us to Patrick AFB, Virginia Beach, San Diego, Honolulu, Travis AFB, and back home! We stayed 1 night in San Diego and another in Hawaii. While on the island for 27 hours, we headed down to Waikiki Beach and I met up with some friends from optometry school. The next morning, we hiked up Diamond Head, before heading home.
I travelled light for this trip, only taking my Fuji X100s and a few filters. I have enjoyed this camera, but really fell in love with it on this trip! I am still reluctant to take the plunge to shooting JPG only with this (to speed up my processing time), but I did shoot RAW+JPG for this trip, then proceeded to process every single one of the RAWs in VSCOFILM

Since we were teaching the flight surgeons last month, I had to stay late at work for a few days. The only bonus to this is that I get to catch the sunset on the way home (and pull over for a quick shot). It looked like a good one was brewing this particular evening so I tested out my Fuji X100s with some landscape work!

Last weekend, I flew to Hawaii (Honolulu) for the day with one of the transport squadrons out in Jacksonville, FL with my buddy Mike. This was my second time on the island and didn’t get the chance to climb up Diamond Head the first time I was here with the Air Wing. Mike and I woke up early the day we were leaving and took the hike up to the top where I captured this 21 image pano. I quickly processed it and was happy how it came up, so I thought I would use it as a little teaser before the full trip post in the coming weeks…
Stay tuned for more from this adventure!
