Got ready early and the Bus was late as per usual and still messed up pretty bad - crowded. But this time it seems that most people were going to the parade in Kapolei. So we squeezed through there and I could sense the driver was not going to spend a lot of time on the freeway.
The reception desk is always a good one. This one wasn't too bad,
but still not clear enough. I am definitely doing something wrong.
People coming in and I am having a few dances. Everything looking good. Met my good friends, the Pachecos and I was able to convince them of what I like to do in the dance environment and they helped me to gift someone with a dance video. So we go slowly. Later on I talked with Willy and Nora about getting rid of my VHS tapes and finding the right people so we can spread it around.
Then met some nice people from Pearly City. and lucky I found it easy to get a photo.
Too fuzzy, but I at least got away from the "peas in a pod look." (all in a straight line)
I am getting the new camera on the 18th so I will get some practice
Got late photos from John Ramos. Terrific photos, good photographer,
almost a perfect example of what the blogs and the reader/dancers need.
Only one defect, yes, I know, the subject matter.
I was finally recommended to John Ramos for the camera that was not working. I was able to communicate that I was looking for someone that could fix, and then keep it. Now, he knows what I meant. I have just ordered a new Cannon PhotoShoot and they are more expensive but I have to keep going to get the photos that I need for publication.
The bus situation is still horrible. I was lucky to get a seat, but later it was tough to see old ladies standing. But the city couldn't care less for these "ethnics." We need more buses not rail but the ones at the top have to make those billions and billions of dollars that are going to be available. It is "Easy Money, Sonny."
Pub's Side Note: Got an E-mail from June with the HBDA Poster. It is just a little small. Bigger is just more fuzzy. I will take this opportunity to make a nice poster for them and I intend to visit them on New Year's Eve and get plenty pictures with my new camera.
