I love walking around pretty much any neighborhood with or without my camera. I have a curious nature and even if I have been in an area many times I find that the views can change dramatically over a week, a month or even at different times of the day. Interestingly, what hat I notice also depends on my state of mind while I am out exploring.
No day is the same – taking a left instead of a right down a familiar street, heading down a different street, or even walking the same street in a different direction draws my eye to different scenes.
The Makiki area, like many other areas in Honolulu, is dotted with mid and high rise apartment buildings that sit alongside micro neighborhoods of single family homes many of which look as if they date back to the 1950’s or earlier. The area is hilly and there are very few through streets so I always end up farther away from where I started that I planned and without a direct way back. It makes for a good walk! Many times I head home exhausted, often out longer that I expected, but still excited to look at the images on my card when I get home.
Nestled in one of these micro neighborhoods of old homes is this view of the pews within the Community Church of Christ and it is the latest addition to my Around Town portfolio.
