Yesterday for the 3rd year in a row I was at the beach in Waikiki for the annual Independence Day, 4th of July outrigger canoe races. You can check out the Independence Day gallery (in the Hawaii gallery) to see photos from the Waikiki Outrigger Races yesterday at the beach! There are also photos from 2009 and 2008:
Just like in 2009 and 2008 it was a lot of fun! When I shoot there I am barefoot and just wear board shorts. On the beach and out in the water up to my waist and almost to my chest a couple of times. Like in previous years my hands and camera didn't get a drop on them. Oh, I am good. :-)
It was a blast with all the boats launching and then returning, the crews on the beach, and the cheering fans. Also, children there too!
