hawaii sights

Even with all the errands and appointments I've been running with my grandma and parents, I've still taken the time to take in some sights...

A beautiful orchid in my mom's collection...

A beautiful sunrise on my morning walk...I was trying to "copy" my Flickr friend, Rex's photo...my photo does not even come close.

This statue of a Japanese fisherman had been in my grandparents home for ages.

This canister at my grandma's reminded me of the canisters my mom used to keep her flour and sugar in.

This ceramic dog near the butsudan (altar) another piece that had been in my grandparents home for ages.

A beautiful sunset...

The low tones of this wind chime to let you know that the tradewinds are back...

I think you did a pretty good job with the sunrise, considering how busy you've been. I like the part where Rex said making lemonade out of lemons...hehe.

Love that ceramic of the fisherman!

I love all the little detail pictures you chose... too many times we think of hawaii as just beaches, but your photos capture local color too!
