April 2010


April is Merrie Monarch time, and I got to attend two nights of spectacular hula. Some of the best pictures, like the classic hula shot below, are in the kalani galleries.

But there are lots of photos I like that aren't your standard glossy hula shot. This year I separated them here into pictures of men (kane) and women (wahine). And there is one gallery of sixteen pictures from one men's hula kahiko performance. They tell a story as a whole, but each picture tells its own story, as well...
