One need not go to sleep to have underwater dreams along Maui’s shores. Just slip on a mask and casually swim around. You’ll see a whole new world thriving with life alien yet an integral part of our world. From the ancient and endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, aka Honu, to the plentiful Yellow Tang, Angel Fish and a periodic Parrot Fish to wonderfully odd and beautifully arranged gardens of coral and rock formations. Better than a daydream, more real than a dream from sleep, these underwater dreams are as real as being fully awake (which as many a poet and mystic have said, is but a dream).
Every image in this collection was taken with a simple underwater point and shoot camera while swimming around Maui’s south shore beaches. Each image is also adjusted through a ‘paint’ filter in the computer to give it a more dream like quality.
