    Grd 2 Hawaiian Style

    Some pictures taken On the west side of Oahu ....This is where the Gv-2 really shines ...shooting into the sun .... bright day at the beach the LCD screen is all but useless .. I love this view Finder you really have to use it often to learn how to compensate ... it actually becomes quite accurate .

    Thanks for posting your shots of Zuma ...... I checked the surf report ...... small but fun.
    This week The North and West side should come up ...... 10' -15 ' .....good surf all week !!!! Hate taking my camera when I go surfing in fear of it getting stolen ..... the Ricoh is small enough so I should be able to hide it pretty good ; )

    Shirokuro,
    all your shots are awesome.
    I REALLY like the shot of the child in the sand.
    Elegantly simple composition, striking shot!

    Good pictures, but the important thing here is whether the in tha GR Digital book that the woman is holding are the Moriyama Daido pictures the humdrum colour ones that he did for Ricoh with the GRD, or are they B&W?

    Re: Grd 2 Hawaiian Style

    Mitch they are the boring color ones ..... I was a bit surprised .

    all the shots were taken with the 21mm ,Program AE ,ISO64 ...... I guess when you are a genius you can photograph anything in auto mode ........

    Daido did some shooting here in Hawaii ...... I knew where some of the shots were taken so I went and photographed the same locations ... just to see .... any way his photographs were better lol .......

    The first Photograph is of
    Manana island .... this is one of them . Not to say my version was bad ...it just looked like a cool shot of Manana island ..... ; )

    It's huge, some 400 pages I'd say not having counted them. It's better then his Buenos Aires book, I think.

    Charley:

    My favourite is the B&W one looking down at the woman and the shadows of the palm trees. Magnificent!

    Here are some palm shadows, but I prefer yours (GRD2 at ISO 400):
