I was lucky enough to get a portfolio into the Contemporary Photography in Hawai'i exhibit this year. It's the best photography exhibit in Hawai'i and it's the first time they've offered the option of submitting portfolios instead of just individual photos. I submitted five individual photos and none of them got in, but my portfolio did get in so I was pretty happy. You can see both the individual photos and the portfolios if you follow this link to the Pacific New Media website: https://pnmlab.com/2020/08/31/contemporary-photography-in-hawaii-2020-2/
I'm also including the larger group of photos out of which I chose five to submit to the contest so you can see what didn't get in the exhibit. Oh well, maybe next year!
Still stuck at home most of the month. Many of the best August photos were taken at a protest near the Honolulu Hale (City Hall). It was one of the only events that's happened in months and I thought I could get some good photos there. People were gathering to protest another state lock down after the number of COVID-19 cases began to go up dramatically. It ended up being a Trump rally. No, I'm not a Trump supporter, but I took some good photos of those who are.
The focus of the blog is to share larger groups of shots than I can share in the galleries.
