One of the camera operators for OC16 Sports changed into his Batman costume during halftime of the first game of the night, on the week before Halloween. We were both in the high north end zone camera positions. He was hamming it up, while another camera operator in the low south end zone put him on TV.

Flight Simulator

Last June, I was invited to preview the new Airbus A330 flight simulator that Hawaiian Airlines purchased, and installed here in Honolulu. Members of the media were invited to "up" in the simulator for a flight. During my time in the simulator, we did two flights, the first by the pilot; and the second, I got to take off and land at HNL. I took this "selfie" with my iPhone and an Olloclip fisheye attachment.

The Farrington High School Governors football team normally has the left side of their helmets blank. During the 2013, one of their players, senior cornerback Dayne Ortiz, was lost in a kayaking accident in Mokule‘ia, this past November. The Governors were on track for the state football championship when the tragedy happened. To honor Dayne's memorial, the team applied the "DO29" decal on the left side of their helmets for the remainder of their state football playoff run.

Graffiti Trio

Our nieces and nephew pose like the cat on the wall. The mural was part of a street art project in Kaka‘ako called PowWow Hawai‘i. This mural was painted over a few weeks ago, as the 2014 edition has new art painted over the 2013 murals.
