If you’re visiting Honolulu, it’s worth a couple of hours to take a tour of the Iolani Palace. The grounds are beautiful and the building is fascinating. The decor and items displayed date from the late 1700’s through the late 1800’s. The palace was the seat of the Hawaiian royal family after moving from the Big Island to Oahu. In the 1800’s, the United States basically tricked the queen into giving up her sovereignty for protection, promising to give it back, but that never happened.
I love history. I love learning about places and people and cultures. I fully believe that if we don’t know and understand our history, we will be doomed to repeat the horrors and failures of the past.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) THAT REPRESENT HISTORY.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
