    view large

    Hilo's quaint downtown contains wooden clapboard and stucco buildings with corrugated tin overhangs covering the sidewalks. A walk through town reveals flower and fruit stalls, fish markets, butcher shops, soda fountains, seed shops, and luncheonettes. Hilo has many magnificent gardens and parks.

      WOW! Never thought that Hilo could look like this. You bring back a lot of memories. The Hilo Bay Building is owned by "Uncle Billy" Kimi (the same person that owns half of downtown Kailua-Kona). That's where he got his start with a store that sold military surplus. He even had a loaded up truck that went out to all the sugar cane camps on the Big Island to sell his inventory. He eventually bought that building. Then later built the Hilo Bay Hotel on his own with his family & friends and the rest of the story is local history..

      Thanks Mr SFJ,
      I hadn't thought of that when shooting this hand held and in a rush as there is traffic all around and as I was trying an all auto settings.. I will remember that on the long shots as time goes by and as I become more comfortable with this camera

      Putting Hilo on the map, so to speak. Really nice shot Alan. Definitely has that old postcard feel, save for the cars.

      i love this fantastic photo!
      the treatment is awesome and i love the fact that my eye is drawn first to the pink building (my favorite color) and then to the wonderful palm waving in the breeze.
      This is superb!
