Happy Thanksgiving! This is my entry for this week’s theme, “trio” at the WP Weekly photo challenge. It has been a cold and rainy week in Paris. Yes indeed, it would be nice to be on the beach at Waikiki right now… But until modern technology invents a “beam me up, Scotty” machine for each… Continue reading Weekly photo challenge- Trio
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.

To put it in another way, “shit happens”… We all know that one. I have been intensely involved in… Continue reading My return
I saved a seat just for you.. There is Diamond head, the yacht club and Waikiki hotels. Have a great week!
I visited for the first time the Hawaiian mission houses in downtown Honolulu. This fascinating museum takes you back to the 19th century. These are original houses of the New England missionaries who settled in Hawaii. I have no photos of the interior because we are not allowed to photograph the interior. Daily life is… Continue reading The Hawaiian mission houses historical site
I am just riding the wave of good vibes and smiles… Red warning flag and young surfers. Waikiki beach. A young boy climbing on the sea rocks, Waikiki beach. A smiling bodyboarder, Waikiki beach.
This was a beautiful way to start to my day while I was on Oah’u. I did a sunrise tour with Oahu photography tours. I highly recommend this tour to any fellow photo fans who are Hawaii bound. You will spend a fun half-day or day in superb locations on Oahu. The guides are fun, helpful ( you… Continue reading Hawaiian sunrise
