I've been back home in New Mexico for a week now after making the trek home to Hawaii. I consider both places to be my home. It always pulls my heartstrings heavily when I make the transition. But, I know full well, that I cannot live there (Molokai) full time. And, I DO love New Mexico.
I took this image in the backyard of my brother and sister in law's home on Oahu. It is a plumeria flower (a frangapani flower) that landed up on the top of their rain barrel. I love the contrast of colors along with shadows. Simplicity at its best, that's for sure.
Molokai from the air
Leaving Hawaii to return to the mainland last week-I made sure I sat on the side of the plane where I would be able to see my beloved island as we flew by. A mere 38 miles by 10 miles at best. That's the island of Lanai you see at the very top right hand of the picture plane.
On the flight over to Hawaii, our plane had a media screen in front of each chair and you could follow the flight path in real time. Just so you have a better idea of it's size and place in the chain of islands called, the Hawaiian islands.

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.
