How funny that the first photo hunt post I visit for today are ones from where I was born and raised. These are beautiful photos. Love the architecture. I wish I had taken more photos like these before I left the islands.
Have a great Easter weekend!

Great shots, girasoli. And the church is beautiful.
It is a nice day on Maui today, after rain and clouds for the past two days.
Have a great weekend!

Nice to see this against the background of blue sky and palmtrees. Such interesting angles you chose to view.

Beautiful triangles. One thing I learned this week is that architects really make use of triangles.
Great shots for this week.

Love your take on this weeks theme. Great photos too!
I found it hard to find triangles in my house this week but I did finally find some.
Mine's up and ready...come on over!

I especially like the third photo down... It looks like a mirror image. Great angle, and beautiful take on the theme.

What a beautiful mausoleum! It looks like a chapel.
Have a blessed Easter Sunday!

Wow, a beautiful church! And I love the contrast with the palm trees -- so unlike the urban Italian churches I usually admire.

Those are great photos and really interesting. I thought at first they were pictures of Italy and I was surprised to see such a regal building in Hawaii. Nice post for this week's theme.

I was surprised to find this unique little mausoleum in downtown Honolulu. I took these photos a few years ago. At the time I thought it was a chapel. I wasn't focusing on the triangles at the time.
menehune, Yes it is near the 'Iolani Palace.

Hi Girasoli, great selection for this week's photo hunt! I also love seeing the palm trees rising above the mausoleum and along the sides. Very cool! It looks like it was a beautiful sunny day when you took these fabulous shots too! Happy Easter Sunday!

YES! Mahalo. That is a place I visited last time I was in Honolulu. Ty took me there as he says - a grand place (as in historically grand as well). Thanks for bringing back this memory...Go Sox! Menehune

Nice photos, it does look more like a chapel than a mausoleum. It also looks very European which makes the palm trees look even cooler!
Hope you're having a great Easter weekend! I am except that it's going by too fast. :)
