I did a search and found nothing on this subject. I can easily edit/delete if I'm needlessly starting a new thread.
On a recent trip I took tons of pix. Most are of interest only to me. A few, imhbo, are worthy of sharing with my fellow tc’ers. Please share yours. Only guidlines that I would like to see followed; Photos must be yours.
Must somehow, however loosely, be connected to our mutual interest in “tiki”
Captions, if you got em.
I’ll kick this off with six of my fav’s-opinions/comments welcome

Front Lawn,Bishop Museum, Honolulu, November,2013



Waikiki, Halloween,November, 2013


Tiki and Banyan tree, International Marketplace, Honolulu, November, 2013



Hanalei Town,Kauai, November, 2013



Kamokila village, Wailua Valley, Kauai, November, 2013



Colocasia after a rain, the “jungle” area of my backyard,La Mirada,Ca, November, 2013



Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
Mahalo

Nice idea.
I will play.
This is from a video I took of the Kahiki.
Took this shot of this light because I really wanted this light it's huge and made of
plastic with plastic beads inside that sparkle when lit.


Here is that same light in my house.
Gave some music and a dvd of the last days of kahiki I shot to the owners wife.
Later that day the workers at the egg roll factory told me to come and get this light.
They would not let me pay for the light. Thank you mrs. Tsao.


American airlines tiki with a Bosko tiki as well.
I put neon behind the AA tiki for a cool glow.


This would make a nice screen saver.
Don't often see a group of floats all lit up en mass.

I love this photo so much I use it in my TC avatar. This 8FT tiki originally resided at the Kona Kai in Kansas City, MO
Carved by Oceanic Arts. Photographed by my buddy Silverline.

Great photos everyone. I'm no photographer by a long shot but here are a couple of my favorites that I have taken. The first is a vintage tiki from the Mai Kai Lounge in Tecumseh Mi. from my expedition a few years ago. It's gone now.



This is a photo of a vintage velvet that hangs in my home bar the Hukilau Lounge.

Mudbone, I wish I did but I don't have a clue. To far from my house to check on it from time to time.

Great thread!

Here is a pic I snapped a few weeks ago at Haleiwa Joe's in Haiku Gardens. It screams "mysterious Polynesian jungle adventure" to me!

Some pics from a trip to the Islands of love (well according to Elvis)a few years ago.

Firstly, at the Hawaiana on Oahu, now long gone:





Another tiki in the gardens at the Sheraton Kauai:



Bar stools at the Tahiti Nui, Kauai:



Sunset at the Royal Hawaiian Surf Bar:


A view of the Royal Hawaiian from the Waikiki Circle Hotel (built in 1962 and in the opening shots of Blue Hawaii):


and finally, Mitzi the Tiki Cat in our garden at home:
