Fencing in Paradise

A  L  O  H  A !
PARADOX:
The mural on this
 construction fence shows
the paradise they are selling-
The paradise they are infringing.












The Sunset Cannot Be Fenced














I like what this photo reveals 
about the back streets and 
older infrastructure of Honolulu.
It says a lot about how 
local people live, 
in cinderblock apartments, 
riding mopeds.
But if you look to the 
end of this street, you 
see the peaks of the Ko`olau Mts.

Thank You!

My favorite is the unfenceable sky! Great post. Thanks for showing us "behind the scenes" at Waikiki.

Funny thing the moped stood out first for me, but I always love the mountains! Aloha, enjoy your off the beaten paths, everyday.

Visiting via Good Fences :)
Reminds me of an old song lyric, "They paved paradise to put up a parking lot".

William Kendall said...

Andy thought of the same lyric as I did.

Oh the irony of the first fence.
And the magnificance of that unfenced sky.

I do not like tall buildings.
I like to look at the sky not live in it.

Don't fence me in applies to the sky and brave free spirits.

Progress isn't always a "good" thing. - Too bad they've infringed on the beautiful countryside with highrise buildings. - I agree that sunset was to pretty to be fenced in.

Too many huge buildnings in the paradise.

Wish you happy friday.
