Daily post weekly photo challenge- Change and contrasts in Hawaii

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

These photos come from my 2014 trip to Honolulu, Hawaii. Change has never stopped coming in Hawaii. Honolulu is a very modern city but visitors can  also see some reminders of the past.Here are a couple of photos that show historical contrasts in or near the financial district of downtown Honolulu:

Our lady of Peace Cathedral Basilica is like a “bridge” between the 19th century and 21st centuries( it was founded in 1843). The cathedral is between 20th century skyscrapers.

Inside the cathedral, one of the stained glass windows also shows a change of eras and traditions…

An American vessel greets a Hawaiian outrigger canoe. Below, a dove ushers in the changes to be with a symbolic olive leaf branch. If you click on the photo, you can also see Honolulu, with its homes and buildings. The city has of course, changed radically through the centuries.

Finally, another image of change… the statue of King Kamehamea the first ( unifier of the Hawaiian islands) is amist modern skycrapers.

    1. Hi Lita,
      Thank you for coming to my blog. I am glad if you enjoyed the photos of the stained glass.
      Hawaii is such a sunny place. The light usually shines through the stained glass so nicely!
      These windows are quite old and still lovely.
      Have a nice day 🙂
