Chinatown Passerby - Honolulu, Hawaii

Chinatown Passerby – Honolulu, Hawaii

After a quick visit and a snap of a seafood market, I got back on the street. The overstuffed shelves and the red banners made for a characteristic backdrop to Chinatown.

The well-lit passerby framed by an opening might be an unoriginal street photograph. But, it’s a kind that I don’t make often. “Ethnic” looking surroundings in a well-worn urban scene automatically make for a more compelling photograph in my book. Especially compared to modern character-less cities or boring suburbs.

While Honolulu sounds more exotic than the average American city. Here, in this photograph, there are no signs of the tropics. A gritty city does not come to mind when you think Hawaii. Which elevates the image a tad more. It feels good to break out of typical tourist photos.
