From the Window Seat | Honolulu

Aerial shot of Honolulu airport and the Pacific Ocean.

I’m Hawaii dreaming and keeping my fingers crossed. πŸ˜‰ So today, I’m sharing some pictures from my window seat aboard a Hawaiian airlines flight to the Hawaiian capital, Honolulu on Oahu Island.

It was my first visit to the Aloha State, a few years ago. And we were flying in from San Jose, California. It was an August (in every way) afternoon and the Pacific Ocean looked its best and the islands of Hawaii looked very inviting.

These photographs are from a point-and-shoot camera, and there was the airplane window between the camera and the sights below but you can still see how gorgeous Honolulu and the great Pacific are together:

  6. That was truly a window seat, Divya! What a way to say Aloha! to the Hawaii.

  7. This is one of the places on my bucket list. Btw, point and shoot are better than DSLRs. They are easy to handle.

    • Gosh Saru, I swear, you guys will fall in love with HI. Don't just go to Honolulu. There's more to Hawaii that just that city. I think I can visit these islands again and again. πŸ™‚

      I love my DSLR and what it can do and that's what use most. But seriously point-and-shoots are best when you have just the time to pull it out and go shoot, shoot, shoot. And in low light too, it's easier coz you don't have to set up. :D. πŸ™‚
