I made the half-a-mile walk from Chinatown to document the Aloha Tower. In 2018, I visited for the first time. The observation deck at the top affords commanding views of downtown and the Honolulu Airport. I was hoping to make high-resolution images of the city. Unfortunately, because of COVID, the facility was closed.
Instead, I settled for just beauty shots of the exterior. Perspective corrected, after the fact, using Capture One.
Opening in 1926, the 184 feet tower was the tallest structure in Hawaii for four decades. A retired lighthouse, it’s considered a Hawaiian landmark and acted as a beacon for immigrants to Hawaii.
