We were trying for sunset, actually, since it was full moon, and we could catch the moonrise as well, but we were trumped in the end by the tropical storm that grazed the island that night. I think I got a few good ones along the Hana road today, though.

At one overlook a young guy asks me, "Is that one of those cameras that takes the big film?" Hey, score one for the locals! His photography teacher in high school shot 4x5", and he said he wanted to set up a darkroom again when he had his own place.
