My time as Artist-in-Residence at Ark of the Unicorns continues and Honolulu’s Chinatown has been one of the most unique I have visited around the world. There are layers upon layers in the short history of the buildings, a huge mix of peoples not just Chinese, and a stuttering start at gentrification.
These elements all come together to create a character all its own and make for no shortage of photographic opportunities. In today’s entry I’ll post ones that I feel show best with color and next entry will be those I found to be best in black & white.
Visiting some areas at night, no longer bustling with pedestrians and tourists, shows how much personality even a bus stop can have.
Playing with various filters in ones photo editing software can bring out various elements one feels at a place or even evoke the delicious smells of dinner being served at a neighborhood restaurant!
At less than 100 years old, many buildings have packed a lot of history in their short time on Oahu.
