The second image is of the Apple store and the third is of the Cheesecake Factory in Waikiki. They are located in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. I love the contemporary look of the apple store and the Gothic look of the Cheesecake Factory.

The Honolulu Zoo is located at Kapiolani Park in the Waikiki area in Hawai'i. Although the zoo looks small from the outside, once inside, the zoo has a very large feel to it. You will need to use the map to see everything since I have spoken to some people that missed a lot of displays because they are kind of hidden down paths that look like they lead to nowhere. Here are a couple of images from this zoo.

San Antonio, Texas is probably best known for the Alamo, but the River Walk is a close second. This area is hard to describe, so the pictures will have to make up for a lack of words. I entered the River Walk after finding a parking place and visiting the Alamo. There was no river in site, but a sign near the Alamo pointed the way. I wend down some steps that reminded me of entering a subway tunnel. The view as we descended got better and better. Water features were abundant and at the bottom of the stairs was a path that went along a river. Boats were taking people up and down the restaurant lined river. It is something you have to experience if you ever go to that part of Texas.

This is a fountain located in the San Antonio's River Walk. This is a real cool place to visit. The river walk is like an underground river that boats go up and down. The river is lined with eating and entertainment establishments. There must be something in the atmosphere there since it is said that a lot of marriage proposals take place there.

The jetty at Waikiki was fairly crowded. A lot of onlookers have their attention set on the little boy. The parents and family members of the boy have been trying to get him to jump off into the water. He jumped once, but he did not appear to want to jump again.

Today was cool and wet in the morning, but the afternoon became partly cloudy and dry. The clouds made a great day for photogaphy. This view centers on Tantalus. The mountain can be driven up via Round Top Road. A lookout up there provides a panaromic view that goes from Diamond Head to the Airport. It is nice and cool up on the mountain, even in the summer. The automobile makes great passage with all of the cutbacks, but a motorcycle makes it a lot more fun.
The garden in the foreground is roughly at the eight story height on part of the roof of the Hawai'i Convention Center. This is a beautiful building. It is amazing what can be built with other people's money and hard work. I finally got to move around freely in the center last weekend. The previous times, I was asked to leave since I only pay for part of it as a tax payer, but did not have a badge. ;-)
This is the view from Round Top Road in Tantalus. This vantage point allows you to see a lot many things such as:
This mountain side stop is a panoramic photographer's dream stop.

You may wish to speak with me before ordering online since you will want a custom size rather than have this image cropped or showing like a thin image on a large canvas.

Notice the difference between the two images? The second image is one of the five images used and is the correct exposure. Because of the sun providing the lighting from above and slightly behind the boat, the stern is underexposed and the clouds are over exposed.
