Honolulu through my eyes...

Aloha and howzit! I've been lurking these forums for a long time now, and finally decided to register so I can share a bit of Honolulu with everyone from my point of view.

I just got a new Canon and am learning how to use it to its fullest, so the shots are not all hi-res (that will change soon). ^.^

The following were done using my "drive-by technique" with steering-wheel stabalization. As I get out of the office more, I'll take other shots.




Honolulu skyline @ sunrise as seen from the H1 viaduct, east-bound, just past the airport



The Harbor Court building, approaching on Nimitz Hwy from the west



Proof of drive-by shooting (rain on windshield) with a shot of the First Hawaiian Building on King St., Downtown Honolulu



Downtown as seen from Ala Moana Blvd., approaching from the east



"Hawaiian Crane" - was a time not too long ago they were prolific from the Downtown area to Waikiki. Now, they are sporadic, but still shows we are building strong.

The photos are a little bit small, but I'm looking forward to seeing more Honolulu photos from you in the future!

Thanks for the pics of home! Please post more.

When I'm back from Iraq, we need to have a Honolulu forum get together (here and skyscraperpage, lots of Hawaii people there too).
