Welcome to the newest addition to my site! The Contributors Gallery.

The images and works contained on this page were contributed by my students of underwater photography and by a few friends. Most are works of my students and I am proud to present them here for your viewing. Please note they are copyrighted images. Hope you enjoy their work! There is a photography saying: ' there are picture takers and image makers' and the contributors endeavor to be 'image makers'. " I wish them all good luck and success in their future image making.

Aloha is a Hawaiian word and used both as a greeting and salutation. Yet there is also a spirit associated with the word Aloha. I vacationed , lived and worked in the Hawaiian Islands and the Spirit of Aloha was explained to me by one of my mentors a famous Hawaiian , Al Malone (actually Al is Irish but lived and shared the spirit with me):

The spirit of aloha is one of love, kindness and giving. Love and Kindness need not be defined but the spirit of giving in this context calls for elaboration. Giving something you have to someone in need of it, that you no longer need. Sharing out of love and kindness

I like that Spirit: the spirit of Love Kindness and Giving, and is the reason I sign my emails using 'aloha'.

The Contributors to this Gallery have the Spirit of Aloha and shared!
