Another Shitty Day Here in Paradise

April 24th, 2010

It’s another shitty day here in paradise! I’m still recovering from a 6 hr flight from Seattle to Honolulu, but the sky, gentle breeze and the water make’s the long flight in a stretched sardine can worth it. I’m taking a week’s break from the wacky northwest weather here in Hawaii.

I wanted to pass on some news from Promote. After my post on the Promote several readers pointed out that the Promote is out of stock every place. So I contacted Promote. Alex Orlov of promote says: “Unfortunately, we are currently out of stock on Promote Controls both at our dealers and our website. The new batch is currently in production and the ETA is approximately 2-3 weeks as it stands now. Having said that, we are working hard on shortening that time, so that we may offer our great product again. Please let your readers know they should check our website periodically throughout the next few weeks to make sure they get their control as soon as they arrive.

I’ll still be posting this week while I suck down these Mai Tais. They have WIFI here on the beach!

  • It snowed 8 inches last night in Breckenridge. I hate you Larry! Don’t you dare post any more photos from Hawaii. LOL.

    Enjoy yourself. This response is green (with envy!).


  • Welcome to Honolulu. We’ve been having some great weather here lately so please relax and enjoy your trip

  • I’ve visited Portland a couple times the last few years and absolutely love it up there.

    But people warn me about the long gray winter/spring. From what I heard, everyone up there goes to Hawaii each year in February, to keep their sanity.

    ..I guess you toughed it out a couple months longer.


  • 6 hours, that’s it? Much better than the 12+ hour trip it takes from the east coast. 🙂

    How are you able to sneak away during the busy spring listing season?


  • Beach or pool? Pool or beach? Decisions, decisions….

  • Actually, the weather in the NW is not all that bad and if you’ve grown up there I have. In fact if I leave there for more than a week or two I start dreaming of moss, grey clouds and rain. A double or triple shot of Starbucks caffeine every day helps get through the Jan and Feb part of the year. That’s why Starbucks was founded in Seattle.

    This Hawaiian get away has more to do with the fact that we had a week of Timeshare points that we were going to loose if we didn’t use than anything to do with the weather.

  • Hi Larry,
    I’ll be where you are in a few weeks to try and capture some memorable images. I also plan to try out a GoPro Camera in the surf, which will be my attempt capture something close (hopefully) to Clark Little’s awesome wave photography:

    I bring all of this up because this neat little water proof GoPro camera has some applicable capability for real estate imaging. You can read all about it at:

    Some of the applicable specifics is that it is a light, small camera that can shoot up to a 170 degree angle of view; which may be quite useful in PAP elevated photography. Additionally, it is interesting that it can shoots HD video, as well as still images, and is capable of shooting “hands-free, 5 megapixel photos automatically at 2 / 5 / 10 / 30 / and 60 second intervals until the batteries die or the SD card is full (2.5 hours). Or set it to single shot, triple shot, or self timer for more traditional photo taking.” The interval capability is useful for time elapse effects like you’ve shared before.

    Lastly, it can shoot “Full HD Video 1080p, 960p, and 720p in 30 and 60 fps (720p).” Shooting 60 fps and then playing back at 30 or 24fps allows for some interesting slow motion effects.

    I’ll let you know how well it works out in a month or so.


  • @David- I love Clark Little’s photography! Yea, this looks like a great camera… continuous shooting until the card is full is a great feature for pole photography.

    Let us know how the GoPro Camera works out.
