I’ve been hoping to come across one of these old staircases for awhile and I found one at the Stangenwald Building on Merchant Street downtown. Anyone know of more like this on Oahu?
A few photos from today wandering around downtown Honolulu. I almost didn’t see the lady in the second photo. As always, photos are taken with a Canon 5d.
Doing work with Honolulu’s Standard Commercial this week taking some abstract’y candid business shots.
At the Hawaii State Capitol building toward the end of the day on a Thursday. Taken with a Canon 5d and 24-70L lens. I really like the wavy white post reflections off the shiny floor.
The man in the photo turned to look at me soon after this shot. I ran away to the next floor above. A few minutes later he appeared looking for me. I expected the standard “delete that photo you took of me”. But he actually just wanted a copy. Thanks!
Checked out Downtown Honolulu’s Livestock Tavern and took a few photos. Beautiful restaurant and even better food. We had the steak, lobster roll, crab cakes, burger and lamb.
I loved the lighting, a soft white light reflecting off the buildings across the street was perfect. Also the beautiful red bricks always a reminder that you’re in Chinatown.
From thorns to flowers the Bougainvillea plant covers both ends of the spectrum. Taken at Iolani Palace in Honolulu with a Canon 5d and 24-70mm L lens.
Bougainvillea was the only thing that would grow at my house when I was a kid. I always had to trim the plants and repeatedly tore apart my hands on the thorns. I hated it. Only now, 30 years later can I appreciate this beautiful plant.
On my lunch break, wandering Downtown Honolulu, Hawaii today. Taken with my Canon 5d and 24-70mm L lens. I think all these shots were taken on the infamous Hotel Street.
Downtown, Honolulu, Hawaii. All the bike racks downtown are shaped like bicycles. I found this funny looking “zooe bike” and snapped a rainy photo. I can’t seem to find any info about this bike online.
On a rainy day in Honolulu. Playing around with the semi-gimmicky inverted-puddle-reflection-street-photo-thing. I could never seem to find a big enough puddle for anything super amazing though. I guess Honolulu has some good drainage systems.
