Gentle reminder of home
I lived in Honolulu for almost a decade, from the mid-80's to the early-90's, and I was fortunate enough to escape serious VOG during that time. Two of my kids, who were born there, don't remember it at all. But it was nice to be reminded of the place I call home.
BTW-I heard that serious consideration is being given to an effort to destroy the WWI Memorial Natatorium in Waikiki. So sad. I passed by their frequently when I worked in the area and always wanted to use it as a location for some fashion images, but didn't get the chance (only partly because it was posted against trespassing).
Unfortunately, the Natatorium is falling apart. The old mayor signed the contract a few months ago to restore it, against the objections of the local residents, but the new mayor cancelled the contract as his first official act. There is a lot anger on both sides about this. I suspect, the pool will be demolished, but the rest of the building will be stabilized.
