Aloha,



This outtake from Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs is actually an alternate shot from the Tree Tops (and part of the Paradise Park complex) restaurant. These incised panels are all over the banquet hall. Paradise Park is one of the places I'd like to explore further, but is currently unaccessable.

Aloha,

Went to do a signing at the Bishop Museum yesterday. Arrived, and all but one of the copies of Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs had been sold.

"It's selling quite well. Can we reschedule for later in the week?"



Today's outtake is the second of the three (lost) "Thor Stor" locations. This one was on Lewers Street before moving across to the new Beachwalk complex. Now, the third location has been replaced by the "Diamond Head Gallery" and has some of Thor, Dennis Mathewson and other artists work.

Im glad to post them. I have plenty of photographs I didn't use for one reason or another.



Honolulu's Hukilau Restaurant is in the lower level of the Downtown Executive Center. The food is good.

Is there Tiki inside of the Hukilau?
Where is the Exec Center located?

The Executive center is in downtown, off of Bishop Street. There is not a lot of Tiki there, but there are some Hawaiiana / old-Hawaii sports themed displays.

...And now, today's outtake from Waikiki Tiki...



This multi-faced Maori-styled carved tree was across from the Waihole Poi Factory (at least that's what I wrote in my photo log.) around 2006. There was a Waka-styled maori carved outrigger canoe there too. (I'm looking for that photograph.) When I went back to get better photographs a year or so later, both were gone (or my notes were wrong.)

Oh, here's that Waka-maori styled canoe at Waihole. I'm going to suppose it's the same carver.

My notes say 2/2006. Yep, that guy is good and his family has been carving for years.
