On my last night in Maui, I wanted to try and capture some of images of the night through some 30 second takes – my first go at playing around with such long exposures.  Needless to say, not having a tripod was excruciatingly tough, but I made due with a few well-placed stones and cigarette butts, and the occasional iPhone prop.  In attempts to let enough light in to make out the patchwork of stars littering the sky, one of the cool but unintended effects was the blurred white of the ocean spray against the rocks.  The night air was calming, and being alone beside the Pacific surf lapping at the darkened Wailea shoreline, waiting for the camera’s tiny click and a brief flicker of what starlight managed to seep through my lens.
