Hawaii is one of the most colorful states I’ve been to, but sometimes being colorful is what makes the most interesting black and white photographs. Here are a few of my favorites…
I agree! I’ve shot some pretty colourful places in black and white. I really like the shot of the man sunbathing. That’s classic!

Thanks Audrey! He was a funny-looking guy so I thought I’d include him in the shot :)
Beautiful photos Claire! So proud (and happy!) for you and Laura.
Thanks Aunt Yvonne! Miss you!!
Absolutely beautiful! You really don’t see Hawaii photos in black and white- or any other islands for that matter. Shooting in b&w really allows you to show details in the contrast and you did that very well with these photos.

Beautiful shots in black and white! Loved them all, Hawaii seems as gorgeous in monochrome as it does in color!!

Countless people began telling me, "Go to Hanauma Bay!" as soon as they knew I was heading to Hawaii. Not...
