Dreaming of a White Christmas...in Hawaii

  I shot this image a year ago when I was in Hawaii.  I really enjoyed the holiday decorations.  People went over the top with decorations even re-creating snow by using white plastic on their front lawns.  I grew up around snow so I thought it was really funny.  It was the first time in my life that I was somewhere warm during the holiday season.  I shot this image using my original Diana and Kodak Portra VC160 film.


  1. "Mele Kalikimaka" Carol!
    I spent a Christmas in Maui a few years ago, so I know what you mean..
    I see you don't have my blogsite listed on your list, I have yours on mine. I have always enjoyed seeing your stuff here and on toycamera.com.
    If you like maybe you could list mine? I made a post just yesterday.

  2. Yikes, those are some BIG snowflakes! :-) I can imagine it might have felt kind of surreal, and I imagine I see that surreal feeling in your photo.

  3. I think Don Ho would approve of this strange little scene.
