Photos from the Net - Dusk to Night

Been thinking of doing this for a while, sharing great and fairly recent photos from all over the net of Honolulu's skyline. Most of following photos are from professional photographers found in individual websites and many from real estate websites, all with great cameras and many with brilliant colors. I think I'll divide these photos into two groups: Dusk to Night and Day. Here are the dusk to night ones I've collected each with a brief description and of course the web source for proper credits. First photo is a great shot contributed by floor23 in the Honolulu Development page of this website.

Waikiki at night via videoblocks by cre8ive na8ive, on Flickr

Although this last photo is the oldest, I like it because it really captures Waikiki at night. There maybe are thousands and thousands of visitors nearby but the famed beach is relatively and surprisingly tranquil at night, with the moonlight and small waves splashing on one's feet, drowning out the cars and bar bands next door. Just how I remember it many years ago as a boy.

Lastly Kakaako District of Honolulu

This is by far the most active area of Honolulu involving recent and new construction. I'll try to go from west to east in the photo layout.

Honolulu truly is an underrated city. There are no grass shacks anymore, only in museums.

From the Honolulu StarAdvertiser today

All Kakaako buildings in upper part of this picture with Diamondhead in the background. From an article of Matson shippers getting new cranes for Honolulu Harbor.

Matson new cranes with Kakaako in background via Honolulu Star Advertiser 04-17-19 by cre8ive na8ive, on Flickr

Here, with this photo taken by a drone at approximately 400ft, one can see why the Hawaii Legislature requires a maximum roof height at 400ft and utility roof structures at 418ft max, so as to not cut off the view of Diamond Head. None of these buildings exceed the height of the iconic volcanic cone, But there are problems with this building code limit. One, from the ground Diamond Head is blocked (even with 100ft structures). Two, this limitation creates a "crew cut" effect on the city's building, which to me, like crew cuts, are unsightly. One can also see this height limit on the previous photo in the last post. Our elected officials must understand that Diamond Head should be and clearly can be seen from the air, over the offshore waters and from the large park near the footing of the landmark and these areas should be restricted.
