    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    hawaiian vanilla pupuIn my three-year-old blog post, I acquiesced to the food photography trend by taking my own and allowing that the act of photographing food was akin to photographing a beautiful Hawaiian sunset or Hawaiian monk seal snoozing on the beach.
