Capitol Atrium

Capitol Atrium - Honolulu, Hawaii

Capitol Atrium – Honolulu, Hawaii

People in the know of the historic area of Honolulu might realize that I omitted one significant building. While it’s not old, it is a noteworthy structure in the middle of it all. The Hawaii State Capitol.

I didn’t take a picture of the entire building. It was under renovation, and it didn’t look attractive with the added clutter. However, I did go into the central atrium and snapped this photo, carefully excluding the scaffolding.

Unlike all the recent photographs, I didn’t use the Fuji GFX 50R. Which was limited with the attached 35mm lens — it wouldn’t have worked here. I employed the Fujifilm X-E3 with the kit lens that produced this more expansive 22.5mm perspective. While dramatic, it bugs me that the image is not framed symmetrically. Perhaps I’ll need to make another attempt in the future.

As you can see, the Capitol is built with an open-air design. It is said that the sky is Hawaii’s Capitol dome.
