Photo: The Hawaiian flower lei I gave my special wahine for Valentine’s Day.
Ever since we first caught the Aloha Spirit in 2006, we try to keep it around us as much as possible. Few things can bring that magical island feeling back like a fresh Hawaiian flower lei.
We’ll order them from time to time, usually from hawaiian-leis.com, and while they usually only last a few days, the memories they bring back are well worth it.
Wait ‘Til Next Time…
This particular lei was a surprise V-day gift for my lovely wife, and I only had about 30 minutes from when it was delivered to when we came home – talk about cutting it close!
That didn’t leave a lot of time for me to set everything up for more thorough photo session. I almost wish I had a macro lens or had switched to my 50mm f/1.8 instead, so the next time we order these little floral gifts of Aloha, I may be better prepared.
I did take a few smaller bracketed exposures to play around with the Super Resolution technique I’m reading about in Photographic Multishot Techniques from my book list earlier this year. I honestly never knew it existed and haven’t tried the software yet, but at least I snapped the necessary shots to experiment with.
If it works out, you’ll probably be seeing this image again in the near future.
