Hey look, it’s the same picture that everyone who has ever been to Hawaii has already taken! That’s right folks, I was a tourist just like everyone else while I was there, and I went to a luau at some hotel, and I took long-exposure pictures of the guys doing the fire dancing. I wish I was original, but I so totally am not.
In other news, I decided today to stop posting links to Rate Dave’s Photos. Because it’s dumb, and ugly, and I wouldn’t want anybody to go there anyway. I don’t even have a good reason for why I was putting those links there this whole time. So, I stopped. You probably don’t even know what I’m talking about, which is good, because it’s dumb. Right, good, let’s get on with the rest of our day.

Hey everyone! As promised (and requested by one reader in particular), here’s another shot from Hawaii (although probably not quite what any of you had in mind.) This is of course a member of the standard set of pictures that just about any tourist in Hawaii will come home with – a slow-shutter shot of one of the fire dancers at the luau. One of the cool (and, to me, really surprising) parts of this shot is that the dancer is only TEN YEARS OLD! According to the announcer, that kid had recently won the world championship in the children’s division for fire dancing, and I’ve got to admit, he was pretty dang good at it. Quite a show. I’m trying to think of something else I can say about it, but nothing’s coming to mind. So, I guess I’ll call that good then!
