Reflections in a City Park
This is a pond at the east entrance to Ala Moana Beach Park — which is right beside the marina. Those are buildings and sailboat masts you see reflected in the water above.
This is one of the bridges that spans the canal in the park. This bridge makes it easy for pedestrians to get to the park from Ala Moana Mall — or maybe it makes it easy for folks visiting the park to run to the mall for whatever picnic stuff they might have forgotten. Alan Moana Mall has both a grocery store and a Long’s Drug.
Here is a bit more of the canal. I loved the reflection of the cooling shade trees and the bright blue sky.
More of the canal — with one of the local denizens contemplating fresh fish for supper.
The Night Heron up close. I rendered it black and white for Nicole B.’s,Â January Photo Challenge. Â When I first changed this photo to B&W, I was disappointed by the lack of definition. Â The feather texture was completely lost. Â I returned to the colorized version of the photo, slide the color slide (Picasa) as far to the cool side as possible — which horribly distorted the colors — then I clicked on B&W and created the photo above.
