The Road to Hana in 45 Seconds

Friday, July 31, 2009

Aloha Friday, Videos

Okay, short story. I’m browsing through photos late last night (somewhat half asleep) and I accidently hold one of the arrow keys down during full screen mode. The result was 5-10 photos a second whizzing across my screen, which gave me the idea to create the following.

It’s sort of a silly compilation, and probably needs an epilepsy disclaimer, but I thought it was neat.

Shown here are 450 photos I took along the road to Hana this past February. None of this photos were edited other than removing all the portrait-composed shots (except for one I missed), so it’s not intended to be some lavish production. And of course, 45 seconds isn’t nearly enough to replace the experience of enjoy 2 days driving up and down the road to Hana in person, but that’s a no brainer. :)

Not Complete
If you’re an avid Hana fan like myself, you’ll probably notice there a ton of cool places missing. That’s because I only used photos from our last trip, which was our 3rd visit to Hana. As I mentioned during our vacation posts earlier in the year, we skipped many of the places we had seen before on previous vacations, so that’s why there are no photos of things like the Black Sand Beach or Ke’anae Peninsula.

Here’s the list of things you can spot if you’re quick enough.

Talk Story
Let me know what you guys think. I may play around and extend it out 90 seconds and slow down the photo rate, or maybe even go back and include photos from Hana visits passed. Keep in mind this was just a spur of the moment time of thing and not something I slaved over, so forgive some of the jerky frames, crooked horizons, etc.

    I loved seeing your fast photo show of the road to Hana. We spend the winters in Maui every year and a reminder of how beautiful it is when we are back here in Canada is always welcome.

    Aloha Kris,
    I actually came across your Hana Road photo experiment on Ideal's 'Maui Vacation Guide'.

    So many beautiful glimpses of Maui, I wanted to say or click 'stop' in order to enjoy each one to the fullest.

    @Ideal – Mahalo for the post and the link.

    @Pua – Good point about being able to see the individual photos. This was sort of a spur-of-the-moment idea, and none of these photos were edited or anything like that before hand.

    I'll see if I can upload the 450 photos in their original state, but for now, I'll update the post with links to some of the photos on Flickr that were edited next to each place in the list above.

    AWESOME! will definitely link this up on my post for the Hana Relay.

    Also, I had been meaning to add MauiByPhoto on my blog link but haven’t gotten a chance. Hopefully this weekend.

    Hey… few more days and you and Cindy are here!!!
