Photoblog of Maui, Hawaii


May Theme Day--Numbers

Having returned from my long journey recently, I required time to process, play 'catch-up', and reflect before re-entering the blog scene--and today is the day I'm taking the plunge!

For this month's theme, I couldn't decide which photo I wanted to post, so I posted them both! Hey, it's a Numbers Theme Month, so why not add up the photos, eh?

The first photo is on a subject I've posted about before several times here--the high price of gas on Maui! Gas just keeps going up, up, and up! I know for many other daily photo bloggers, this price is low, but for the States, it's very high. Because of this gasoline price, so many on Maui are re-defining their priorities, lives and employment.

The second photo is my favorite because it has skin in it, and you know how much I love to add skin in photos in a subtle way.

The first photo is riduculous (altho Europeans would laugh at us by now!), and the second is more to my liking!!

Petrol prices have gone up in Scotland due to a 2 day strike earlier this week at our only oil refinery. Hopefully now they're back at work they'll edge down again, we could do with a bit of relief!

LOL, like others, I like the second one best. Not sure why.

Just wrote you a comment and my computer crashed - so if this is a repeat - forgive.

First one on petrol prices is the same all over the world now although doubtless on an island, I guess it's even higher. We should all buy bikes!

Love the second photo. It's just beautiful.

And hey it's good to see you - hope life is good for you, Kuanyin.

Ahh, I like to tell people they don't know what pain is and show an image of gas around the corner from me at 4.05...


You've got me beat there...

Not sure if that's a good thing or not though. :)

You have us beat here in the greater Sacramento area. $3.85. I wonder were it going to stop.
Good numbers theme shots.

Haha, yessss. I have a cousin in HI, and when the discussions turn around to the price of homes, land, gas, etc, he starts off with, "You think YOU GUYS have it bad!?..."

You're a good 70 cents ahead of Dallas on this one :/

Oh well, gasoline prices are always important and they are rising, rising, rising ...

I can not do the calculations cause we use a different metering system but the petrol prices are ridiculous in Greece too. As for the second photo, i'm not sure what it is...but it looks nice ;-)

Okay, I'll stop moaning about our $3.75 here on the mainland. Are you crying uncle yet? I like your number 24 much better. I was 24 when we married, and I found it to be a VERY good year ;^).
Happy May Day!

Both are great choices to show us your concerns, gas prices are for the benefit of a few and politicians all over the world tolerate the situation. Of course I like the second one!
