"Uncle Like Talk Story"
A few years ago I captured this evening portrait of Uncle in his usual evening spot on Black Pot Beach. We talked story and enjoyed some laughs on this evening. Then I asked if it was o.k. if I made a few portraits of him enjoying Aloha Friday, Life and the Island he calls home. He happily agreed and said, "No one ever like make my picture!" Well, we captured a few more moments and laughs together and then said aloha. I bid AhFuk Aloha and headed home. The next day, I went Costco and made a print for him from our impromptu portrait session. A couple days later I went back down to "his" beach and found Uncle in his usual spot. He smiled and waved when I saw me coming. His smile got even bigger when I looked at the print I presented to him. He said "Mahalo!", but the stories, time, friendship and smile were Mahalo enjoy for me.
Kauai is so much more than just nature's beauty, the magic is really in the incredibly wonderful people that call this island home. Go ahead, be kind and make new friends. You might meet someone amazing like AhFuk!
Live Aloha my friends and Happy Aloha Friday,
