Honolulu Front and Back

A  L  O  H  A !
 Waikiki Beach & Diamond Head.
THAT's Honolulu to most people

 Rainbows, Resorts, Ocean Views

This little wood frame house,
surrounded by mid [20th] Century
walk-up apartments speaks to me
of a city growing.

19th Century Chinatown.
Modern  towers 'photo bombing'
the shot

From the Japanese plantation carpenters
who built so many wood frame, local
style shacks, houses, temples,

. . . To the high rises going
up today, Honolulu
is a dynamic Pacific City.

I join all previous 
residents going back 
centuries in saying:
"You should have been
here 30 years ago;
It was so different,
so beautiful then!"

Thanks for Visiting!
