Today is the Golden Anniversary of Hawai‘i's admission to the United States of America as the 50th state in the Union!
Seen above is the Capitol Building from Punchbowl. The Capitol stands adjacent to ‘Iolani Palace. The building opened in 1969, and it's designed with several aspects of Hawai‘i's natural resources.

This is the first weekend that Aloha Stadium has football games for the 2009 season.
‘Iolani Schools hosted the pre-season Father Kenneth Bray Classic last night. The Kaimuki Bulldogs played the Pac-Five Wolfpack, and the Kaiser Cougars played the ‘Iolani Raiders. The Wolfpack mauled the Bulldogs 48-19, and the Raiders beat the Cougars 30-19.
Today's photo shows Wolfpack quarterback PJ Minaya (orange #2) about to hurl a long pass down the far sideline in the fourth quarter, and got this while training one of our new cameraguys.

This Hainan Airlines Boeing 737-800 received a rainbow welcome as it taxied to its parking stand. This 737 was scheduled to arrive from Boeing Field around 1pm, but the flight was delayed, and it arrived after 5pm.
I just wanted to get a shot of this bird for my HNL RareBirds blog, but when I got to HNL, there was no plane. The ground crew, stairs, and the "Follow Me" truck were awaiting its arrival when I got there. I thought, at the very least I'd get shots of B-5480 taxiing to the ramp. I did see the rainbow, and hoped it would not dissipate ... thank God it held, and I got this shot.

On our way to have dinner with Kathy's mom. In order to get there, we need to take Interstate H3 to cross the Ko‘olau Mountains to get to the windward side of O‘ahu.
Today's photo has us going east-bound, through Halawa Valley. It's a very scenic and green drive!

The theme week for August is the Japanese artform called gyotaku, or fish printing. It is usually applied to rice paper, but it can also be applied to t-shirts. We had a gyotaku t-shirt made for Kathy's Uncle Harry for his birthday, will document the process over the course of this week.
Gyotaku artist Naoki Hayashi had an exhibition at the Nohea Gallery in Ward Warehouse. We had stopped to watch one of Naoki's assistants make t-shirts for a couple visiting from Michigan, then decided to have a t-shirt made for Uncle Harry.
Today's photo shows the fish being prepared for the printing process.

Former University of Hawai‘i Warriors slotback Ryan Grice-Mullen scored his first Canadian Football League "major" (touchdown) this season as a slotback for the British Columbia Lions, with a 2-yard run. The Lions, however, were mauled 30-18 by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats tonight, suffering their third straight loss.
Grice-Mullen was a free-agent signee of the BC Lions last September, and actually scored his first career major (a 67-yard catch) against the Calgary Stampeders in the 2008 season finale
Today's photo was taken when former teammate (and current Miami Dolphin) Davone Bess and Grice-Mullen spoke at a Hope968 worship service a couple of years ago.
