should be easy enough to check the liddy part. tom liddy lives in phx and is an attorney.
I’ve lived my whole life in Hawaii (I graduated from the same school Obama did, but a few years earlier; however, I’m no Obama fan).
That landscape photo (obviously a montage) is taken from the Pali Lookout, looking out over Kaneohe. You can see my church directly below the lookout, it’s the large structure in the center of the photo (First Presbyterian). It used to be a golf course clubhouse before we bought and moved into it about 4 years ago (you can see the golf course behind and to the sides of it).
Only problem is that building and golf course didn’t exist in 1980, when you said you were in Hawaii. It was built in the late Eighties, early Nineties, somewhere thereabouts.*
So if you claim you took that photo when you were in Hawaii in 1980, which seems to be implied by including it with others which supposedly confirm your being there at that time, I call “fake.”
I will agree that the out of focus one could have been taken around 1980, given the shortness of the shorts men were wearing (that was the style—compare Magnum P.I.’s swimsuits). From the foliage, I would guess that photo was taken either at Bellows Air Force Station Beach or Waimanalo Beach Park, although it might have been at Malaekahana.
*This site says it was built in 1991 (Koolau Golf Course). http://www.bestplaceshawaii.com/tips/10_best/golf_courses.html
