Monday Drive with the Professor and the Gals I Met

There's No Such Thing as Blue Monday on Okinawa


The day started with some research on another island just a short drive away.

Getting ready for some serious cultural photography takes a bit of advanced planning.

It's best to meet the locals, learn some history and become familiar with the lay of the land.

Being the not-so-studious-person that I am, I like to have a little fun, too.

Doc, the professor, probably wishes he left me behind, sometimes.

That's because I say stuff like, "Wait.  I have to see if I can borrow a girl to pose with me here."


I got him to pull the trigger for this shot.

This is serious business.  I wish I would have smiled.  But it hurt squeezing my face in that board.

 It was lunchtime before I bothered another gal.

She was shy about having her photo taken so, I promised to just shoot her hands.

By early afternoon we were back on the island of Okinawa.

This is at the University of Maryland.

When I spotted that girl I asked if I could take her picture.

There's a group called "Girls with Flowers in Their Hair" I post photos in, on Flickr.

So, I told her, to just keep on going-about her business, and I'd shoot some natural-work photos.

She was such a sweet girl, I had to sneak behind the counter to shoot more.

While Doc was getting professor stuff done, I was talking and shooting.

They don't see many people wearing yellow flip-flops in that office.

So, I showed myself around.

This is Adriesa Kane, the last gal I met on our Monday drive.

That college better take good care of her.

She could run away and become a supermodel.  Dontcha think ?
