The Marketplace in The Big Island, where typical hawaiian food can be savored in comfy home settings. Also known as a chinatown as so many chinese food can be seen here. Maunakea – derived from the name of the dormant volcano in this island. This colorful place is full of colors, spices and sights to remember i can say Aloha!
I used to talk to myself, nope , not used to, i still do. I was watching a beautiful sunset in hawaii on top of the mountain, go down the ocean bay, wondering what could have been, the past moment when the sky was blue and love shows its rainbows.
i started wandering in the ocean, yearning for something deeper than that inexplicable quest for one’s purpose. When you were young, one always thought that love conquers all. Age makes you wiser, but still that doesn’t stop me from scolding myself , my inner self reprimanding me that time can never be wisely spent when love and passion is truly at its peak. I still talk to myself, but this time I am more kind to myself.
Life is a wonderful adventure, love comes as one of its flavors. This picture made me smile, and i no longer ask myself why. – by JoelF
Walking all the way to the flea market alone and excited, and arriving in Aloha Stadium with no direction or plans, except to feel the crowd and the products i’m expecting to see.
What is Hawaii without pearls and seashells? Trinkets and Accessories….so many booth selling stones! (hold it, semi precious stones you would normally accentuate in your wardrobe, not the one you were thinking, hmmm).
What caught me by surprise is the air of reggae, Bob Marley’s photos scattered all over the place as if you’re in Jamaica! Rasta and Reggae wristbands immortalizing Bob Marley. The color of red, yellow and green even on the cups and juices. I was stoned by surprise! Hawaii is really a land of volcanos, rock and stones. You’ll never know what will hit you by surprise.
I love Hawaii and it’s an understatement. Walking in Waikiki is always an adventure, a gallery or a collage of anything one can think of. Although street performers are common anywhere in the world, still can’t resist the call of my lens in capturing these creative performers doing their act everytime i see one. . …I call this one The Golden Boy of Waikiki. Aloha!
“Hawaii is paradise. It sounds cheesy to say it, but there’s music in the air there.”. –Bruno Mars.
Yes, there’s music, a melody that springs from your heart and a rhythm that springs from your hope. Hawaii is such a beautiful place, some say it’s a paradise, others say it is heaven.
No matter how you call it, one thing is sure, you can’t get enough of it especially when you’re about to leave. It’s a mini California: countless beaches . only bigger waves for surfers. endless branded boutiqes and countless hollywood celebrities.
Should I say a a mini vegas too? So many hotels, exotic and world class shows. A mini jamaica because reggae is everywhere. So many Japanese, Asians, Europeans; domestic and international tourists.
History, Culture, Shopping, Nature, for such a small state, there’s so much things to do and so many places to see. You walk , bike, drive, swim, surf or dive, Or just simply do nothing, lay on the beach and watch the sunset and the changing colors of the sky.
I’d love to post all my pictures here, Hawaii is such a paradise i believe it needs a whole website for it.
I remember walking by the beach and witnessing a beach wedding and a funeral simultaneously happening, reminding me of life itself where falling in love is like experiencing the joys of wedding and break ups giving you the feel of attending your own funeral. Life is a bitch really. Ooops, I mean Beach. 🙂
