{ D } - David = Kawika

A picture of Kalakaua Avenue, with Diamond Head peeking through. There is a song by Palani Vaughn called Kawika, a song about King David Kalakaua who revitalized the hawaiian culture and Hula after it was banned by the missionaries in the early 1800's. He also founded the 'Iolani palace.

Other "D"things worth mentioning - DuKe Kahanamoku, Doris Duke, Diamond Head, "Da Kine"

Great view. I like the sky and the palm trees lined with the high rise buildings.

Holy smokes I can't believe it. In 1955, when I was there, it was a straight shot to Diamond Head and none of the buildings that you show were there.

I like the way Diamond Head creeps up in the horizon. That and the palm trees add some nature to the photo. Love Abraham's startled comment.

You have got a fine idea with letters.
I have been thinking seriously, that I will take a long break or finish DP blogging, but perhaps I can think something like this your idea.
Now I am curious to see your letters and photos related with them :)
Have a nice Wednesday!

Wow Hawaii is so spacious and carefree, right out of the postcards!

I'm from Singapore and it's awfully cramped here, not to mention the hot and unbearably humid climate.

Wow! Loved to see this view, with the Sheraton Moana, the hotel where I stayed the first time I landed in Honolulu!
Sorry, I was a bit absent lately; went to Greece to the islands (and survived the fires)...
As I'm late posting, I just left Bali and posted on Singapore at Blogtrotter.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
