I was talking with a friend yesterday who payed me out for the lack of photos in my first two blog posts.  "After all, you're a photographer," were Carlyn's words.  

Just before my last Tahiti trip, I picked up a flash unit for my Canon 7D that (thanks to the camera's built in transmitter) can communicate with the camera to take photos where the light source doesn't come from the camera.  That's what gives the fun look of the pics of my dad and Alain.  

My whole two week trip was full of photo goodness, from trippy moonlight photography to oil-still lagoon water, to pearl product photography on an unexpected model who was volunteering at the farm.  So in the spirit of moving this blog in a more visual direction, here's a moonlit shot of Alain and I enjoying the warm breeze on the cabin of the boat.  The lights on the horizon are the village of Uturoa and the lights in the sky are stars.  For more photography of Polynesia, pearls and surfing please check out
