Even in Hawaii


Here's another week of impressions from Hawaii when we were there recently for my daughter's wedding on June 1.

HA!  You knew I'd find them but did you expect them on Waikiki Beach??
(as seen one morning from our hotel balcony on the 15th floor)

Well, ya gotta stack those sun-worshipers somewhere! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! So true, Larry, so true! smile Thanks.
Wooowww.... the good photograph.
The dramatic cloud in a blue manner that was beautiful.
The development was everywhere, may the process of this development continue to give space for the tree to grow.
I love your the photograph.
Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia.
Ginnie Hart: I'm such a glutton for clouds like this, Bram, truth be known. The cranes were just frosting on the cake. smile Thanks.

They're definitely doing quite a bit of building there. I suppose that's a good indication. I see you're in Amsterdam. I can't keep track of you. Does your back door have a bridge from Atlanta to Amsterdam? lol...just kidding you. Sounds wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: We're in AMS every month, Sherri, back-n-forth, because of Donica's work. That's why I always mention where we are because it's confusing sometimes to even me. grin

A long time ago when I realized cranes were everywhere and would not be leaving any time soon, I decided to embrace them and let them become part of the art! smile Thanks.

You must have been a very happy camper when you spotted these, it is a fabulous sky over Hawaii, never realised there could be those 'Holland' like clouds there too,
Great composition, great colours and border to finish it off.
Ginnie Hart: Precies, Astrid. Holland clouds in Hawaii...but it never rained. And almost immediately the sun would be out full blast. I LOVED the clouds. Holland has rubbed off on me! smile Ontzettend bedankt.

A matching pair, with one at the side for interest. Those clouds look great.
Ginnie Hart: And in Holland orange! How fun. I just started smiling. smile Thanks, Aussie.

An impressive pair of machines for sure.

That's an amazing sky.
Ginnie Hart: Every time I saw the sky like this, Paul, I thought of Holland. It was wonderful. Thanks.

Mechanical Marvels Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I know, Vintage. I'm getting so used to them! smile Thanks.
quel chantier!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, O-P. It totally surprised me to see it there. Merci.
Knowing you, you would have found a windmill tootongue
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You just made my day, Bill. Thank you!!

The sun is catching the crane just right Ginnie and high lighting it with the dark skies behind.smile
Lovely shot as usual.
Enjoy yourself Musketeertongue
Ginnie Hart: You know me, Musketeer! I love stuff like this. smile Thanks, mijn vriend.

Crane family on a beach vacation, I would think, Ginnie.
Well caught, with that gorgeous sky behind.
Ginnie Hart: Even the cranes want to go to Hawaii, Ray! smile Thanks.

Un espace de béton, plus de plage, plus de vert, mais il reste un morceau de ciel, belle photo de ville.
Ginnie Hart: I guess even the cranes want to get in on the Hawaiian action and beauty, Ceanothe! Merci.

They look wonderful with the light on them against that dark sky.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: How could I resist them, Ingrid, right?! smile Thanks.
I t5hink they're everywhere. Ginnie. Love the clouds.
Ginnie Hart: They ARE everywhere, for sure, Mary! So we might as well include them in our photos, right?! smile Thanks.
Not the type of clouds I'd expect to see in Hawaii.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bernie. That's what I thought, too! It's good to see you again, BTW. smile Thanks.

Wow!
'If you build it..they will come????' Pretty dense for a beach!
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Marcie. This is not my idea of what a beach should look like, but then, it had it's own beauty, to be sure. I couldn't complain! smile Thanks.
Not a "Hawaii" view as one might expect, I'm afraid.
Ginnie Hart: Precies, Wim! smile Bedankt.

A pleasing cityscape showing the realities of expansion. I like the detail and cubed-look of the buildings.
Ginnie Hart: I guess they'll keep building if people keep coming, right?! Thansk, Don.

Yes the nature is beautyfull, what people do not always ;-)
Ginnie Hart: We just smile, don't we, Klaus! smile Thanks.

I love the way the low sunlight catches the cranes on top of those foreboding skies
Ginnie Hart: That morning was perfect in every way, Padraig, when I saw this. Thank you.
Three cranes in one shot. I bet you couldn't resist shooting it Ginnie!
The lighting is superb here.
Ginnie Hart: You know me well, Richard! I can never resist cranes. smile Thanks.
amazing backdrop for urban capture, well done
Ginnie Hart: Can't live with them; can't live without them. So I've grown to love them, Viktor. smile Thanks.

Crikey, Ginnie, it looks as if they are still building the place. This does not look like paradise.
Ginnie Hart: That's what it looks like, Chad, and it really surprised me! Thanks.
Interseting shot Ginnie ... strong positive colours. I'd have cropped out just a smidgin above that horizontal roof line
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard, and that's a good suggestion. Don't know why I didn't think of it myself!

I guess you cant stop "progress"
Ginnie Hart: No, you can't, Kanyi, at least not without suffering the consequences. Thanks.

great sky,great light and a great compositionsmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!!
Wow! That's a lot of construction going on. Hope it wasn't noisy in your apartment. Hmm...or maybe it was, for other reasons! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, we never heard the construction, Alex, because of the sound of the ocean (which is out of the image on the left). In fact, we never saw this construction while out and about...only when we turned to look while on the balcony. Thanks.
Oh dear, the not so nice side of this paradise Ginnie, however I like the depth of the colours and the crane stands out really well against the forbidding sky.
Ginnie Hart: As I have said before, Brian, we can't live with them and we can't live without them...so might as "join" them, right?! Thanks.

Nice sky and great composition smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zohre.
Well, not quite the Hawaii of my dreams but a stunning shot. Progress in Paradise
Ginnie Hart: Progress in Paradise. I like that Gingeybaby! smile Thanks.

Razor sharp.
Ginnie Hart: smile You are sweetheart, ChiChi! Thanks.
They're everywhere Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they are, Chris. And I'm guessing there's not a thing we can do about it. sad
Ahhaahh! I see that at Hawaii the real estate crisis has not arrived! smile
Ginnie Hart: You are right, José Angel. I thought the same thing! Thanks.

AAAAHHHHHHHHHH ... construction. There has been a lot of it here in Albuquerque.
Ginnie Hart: All over the world, Helen! Everywhere.

I thought for a minute the 'sun-worshippers' was ray, but then it was Larry. Imagine you had to fly all the way to Hawaii and book into an expenise hotel to get this picture. The lengths you will go to smile
Ginnie Hart: I know, Louis. The ironies of life! smile Thanks.
I know you like them, me too - like the holes of blue in the sky too
Ginnie Hart: Just gotta get them whenever and wherever I can, Aksel. smile Thanks.
