Island perspective

I'm back in Hawaii for a quick 4-day trip, so I thought I would to share a couple of views of Waikiki. Tonight we had dinner at one of the restaurants in the recently re-created International Marketplace, which is now a seriously posh shopping and dining center. The only thing that remains of the original area is the banyan tree in the center of the complex.

After dinner I had to take a short walk down to the beach.  I couldn't resist trying to capture the palm tree shadow on the beach.
