David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.


One-Year Ago Today — Hawaii

The first port on our Spring 2016 Semester at Sea voyage was Hilo in Hawaii. It was really just to take on additional fuel before continuing the voyage the rest of the way across the Pacific Ocean to Japan. The MV Odyssey was only going to be in Hawaii for 14 hours so we were not allowed off the ship unless we were with a Semester at Sea field trip. I originally signed up for a Pearl Harbor Memorial tour, but that trip was canceled. I was then able to switch to a bus tour of the North Shore. The 25 second video/slide show (created by the Google Photo Assistant) contains a taste of the images I took during the day. I will be posting some additional individual images during the day.
