Sorry for not updating in a long time... whatever little time I've had before has become even less

This set is a couple weeks old, met up some friends from Kaua'i I knew in Chicago and showed them around O'ahu. They're kama'aina and have been to the mainland, but they've never been to O'ahu before! It was a trip showing them around, and I guess I'll show the photos in that order

Unfortunately, I only now realized I can't post a lot of the pics cause of my own policy (due to my own irrational fear of the internet) of posting pics of me or friends online... so this will be a spastic photologue

En route to a friends house in Hawaii Kai, I think around Niu Valley. Here around Maunalua bay on the south shore of Oahu, a thin crust of suburban development pretty much climbs up the snaking valleys from the shore


Famous Hanauma Bay, one of the best places to snorkel on the island. You can spend a/several day/s here but we only had time to make a half day out of snorkeling and kayaking


We then went up Kalanianaole Hwy past Koko head. There're a lot of cool turnoffs to gawk at the lava rock


There's also shrine to the Japanese Buddhist-Shinto protector deity Jizo, erected by Japanese fishermen in the 1930s


One of my friends and my friend the sea


Looking towards Makapu'u and a blowhole


Looking across Waimanalo Bay


Windward shot


Across the stern of the USS Missouri



I'll post the pano below so I don't break the tables

Here's that massive pano

Looking at Kaneohe city and bay from Mokapu, near where H-3 enters MCBH:



I'll post pics of the mini tour of Hawaii Kai soon (for real soon this time!)

Cheers,
Jai

Anyway, I've realized that my latest updates have been as urban as before.... here's correcting that. All pics taken in and about the Capital District in Honolulu


Looking toward the mauka sky over Iolani Barracks, the headquarters of the erstwhile Royal Guards to Hawai'is former monarchs. The building was moved to this location to make room for the State Capitol building.




The Majestic Hawai'i State Capitol building, one of the largest and finest examples of what has become known as "Hawai'ian international architecture." The building symbolically represents the Hawai'ian islands, and the reflecting pool, the Pacific Ocean


A regal statue of Queen Liliuokalani, just makai of the building


The pillars of the Capital Building evoke the ubiquitous coconut trees of Hawai'i


ENHANCE


The Eternal Flame, commemorating all those from Hawai'i who served in the United States armed forces. Note how it frames Punchbowl crater and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific located therein



Hope you liked. More to come later...

Cheers,
Jai

Century Square tower, the near twin of Century Park tower by Ala Moana










Aloha, Aloha Tower


'Iolani Palace, the former residence of Hawai'i's monarchs. It is the only royal palace in the United States.
