Aloha Friday Photo: Sunset with an audience

Posted: June 27th, 2014 | Comments Off


Mahalo to Tony Bartlett for sending this Waikiki sunset photo to us for our Aloha Friday Photo series.

I really like Tony’s unique composition of this shot, that not only features an eye-catching sunset, but also shows the many people out enjoying the moment. Waikiki sunsets always seem to have an adoring audience and deservedly so.

Happy Aloha Friday!

Ali’i Mule Skinner, Mr. Buzzy Sproat
