MM 206: A Kaanapali Beach Scene

For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I am submitting yet another photo from our vacation on the island of Maui in 1982. I took several shots while walking along the beach one day and most of the time my camera was pointing toward the ocean. But once in a while I would turn and take a shot of the trees and buildings east of the beach.

A Kaanapali Beach scene in 1982 — hotel buildings peaking through the trees. I’m not sure if either the buildings or the tree in the foreground are there anymore.

We stayed at the Kaanapali Shores hotel 36 years ago. There is a more modern resort next door these days and the hotel where we stayed is now mostly condos.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Wednesdays (Tuesdays in Europe andย  North America) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. Leanne suggests a specific theme for the first week of every month. The theme for next week is Relaxation. I don’t have a photo yet. I guess I won’t relax until I find one!

    I like the silhouette of the tree in front of the hotel where you once stayed. Perhaps Leanne’s post on Ansel Adam inspired you to publish your beautiful image.
