...from the biweekly shoot out description... " Rows, columns, lines, not limited to perspective." I'm going to try and stretch it and say I have a very radial perspective of rows :G

young shoot of the Hapu'u fern




I'm making great use of my recently acquired 50mm macro. This glass has opened up a whole new world to me.

p.s. pardon the typo in the post's title.

Hawaii built,

Very nice Hapu'u shot. Lovely bokeh effect!

Vanessa,

Thehapu'u are not fiddle heads. True fiddle heads are quite similar in shape and can be found in local markets. They are called by their Japanese name, 'warabi' and are a local delicacy.

yup, not warabi... although just as tasty, IMHO. the very very young shoots called "kakuma" are harvested and cleaned, boiled, peeled, soaked, sliced then often pickled to make a japanese "namasu"

labor intensive? yes. ono (tasty)? you bet!



...i just so happened to have a container marinating "namasu" style... complete with Maui onion, fresh local ginger, chili pepper, and kobu (seaweed). great with beer.

selvin- i gotta ask... how much do they charge for a bunch of warabi on O'ahu? must be quite a premium price!

Hawaii built,

Since I bring back the stuff (warabi) from Hilo occasionally, I've had the opportunity to do some price comparisons.

Bunches that sell for $2.00 at the Hilo open market (as in the one in my picture above), would sell for at least $10 in Honolulu. Not only do you get a lot more, but the Hilo stuff is superior quality.

Incidentally, I haven't acquired a "taste" for "kakukma" yet despite being here almost 35 years.

Aloha
