SM ROAD TRIP: July 4th Fireworks in Hawaii Kai, on the Island of Oahu | July 10, 2009

Fireworks signify a celebration; a bold punctuation in the sky.  We stare up in the night sky to witness brilliance, rockets of light and color streaming, making its visual imprint on our minds. Is it the magnitude of the noise, the danger of beautiful light, or the holiday or event it celebrates that wakes us up from our stupor to place such emphasis on seeing fireworks? Whatever the case, I want –but can I have it?– fireworks all the time. Well, I have these photos by my friend and talented photographer Jen Chung to remind me of the festive celebration in gorgeous Hawaii Kai (home of amazing scenic look outs, Roy’s restaurant, Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach.)

Keep Celebrating!!

My childhood stomping grounds. A beautiful, stunning place to grow up. The beauty energizes me. Hope you feel it too.
