Waikiki has a lot of festivals and block parties. A lot. Maybe it's not great for the folks who live there, but it's great for street photographers. It's a prime hunting ground for the perfect shot — or good enough shots at least. This one is somewhat busy, which is why I chose black in white, but the girl in the donut really draws the focus. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't have bothered taking it. Luckily, it worked out, especially with the guy looking back. He said he turned away because he thought I was only taking a photo of the little girl another reason why I enjoy a wide lens. In this case, 16 mm.

Happy year of the rooster! My favorite part of this shot is the shop girl's red apron and the twinkling lights on the tree and the ceiling. Very Miyazaki-esque scene.
