    I have my not $8.000 picture on the living room wall and I can't tell you how many times I have looked through my photos. What a happy and memorable trip.

      hehe, glad to hear your painting arrived safely, and that you had a good time! Thanks for being a good sport when I teased you about your $7,999 painting. ;)

    My first trip with HPW exceeded my grandest expectations. I learned so much from the personal hands on instruction in various locations and ecosystems. The group was like a family getting together for a reunion. I especially appreciated the photo critique at the end of the week. Thanks, Joe, for planning the experience of a lifetime and making yourself available to teach this novice.

    This was an action packed all-you-can-shoot event. It will take weeks to recover and face reality. Really well done tour of the Big Island.

    It was a lot of fun. I appreciated the camaraderie.

    Hey folks. As you guys may remember, we had to move this forward by one day when the house we were renting was taken off the market. This caused some of our excursions to get shifted around. I have updated the Hawaii retreat web site so it now includes Steve's latest updates. If you are printing out the event schedule, please make sure you have the latest PDF. You can find it here: http://HawaiiRetreat.houstonphotowalks.com/ Thanks!
