Soft Sunday Whispers

A   L   O   H   A     from   Honolulu!
“ Be the ghost of 
the empty streets! 
You shall be crowned
 with the touch of
great inspirations! ”

Shell Ginger Spilling
" It is not easy 
to walk alone
 in the country 
musing upon 
something. "
                  Charles Dickens

Linking to

Kawaiahaʻo Church
" constructed between 1836 and 1842 
of some 14,000 thousand-pound 
slabs of coral rock 
quarried from an offshore reef.
 Hawaiian divers with hand tools 
dived 3 to 6 metres 
below sea-level to 
chisel out each coral block, 
which had then to be transported 
from the reef and onto shore. "

Great pics Cloudia! Lao Tzu's quote sets one thinking as it stood for contrast yet effective!

Good Morning, Cloudia! Wonderful images.. The sky looks beautiful and I love the Dickens quote. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

Birdman said...

Dickens is correct. I always get distracted in the back 40 from my work finding something new.

Pretty amazing, that church construction. Thankfully, we're not supposed to hurt the coral reefs like that any more.

I love the ginger! It's so amazing. The sky is beautiful - the air must be so clean!

Charles Gramlich said...

don't think I've ever seen a pic of ginger like that before. cool.

Teresa said...

Very cool pictures. I loved the light and shadow on the stone and the church made out of coral. Can you get close-ups of the church to see the coral?

Mama Zen said...

That shot of the ginger is so cool!

Nancy Chan said...

Lovely pictures. I love the shell ginger spilling...

I hear there is also a pink coral castle in South Miami Florida. So muck work getting the material out of the water- Nifty pics. Have a good week- Aloha!

Is it possible to walk alone without musing about something? I hope not.
Gorgeous pictures and quotes.

William Kendall said...

The church stands out beautifully!

Love that shadow shot and the quote to go with it!

RedPat said...

Interesting to see the coral rock church. There will probably be no more built like that, Cloudia.

The church is wonderful Cloudia, even more so when you know the history and the work that it took to gather the materials to build it!

Shadows are the softest! Great food for thought on your photo!

I love that shot of the shell ginger, Alpinia. I took one too, but it is not hanging as lovely as that.
