Where is TheBus?
The main reason for our 2007 trip to Hawaii was the ASEE Annual Conference held at the Honolulu Convention Center. I found out that it was a pleasant ~20-minute walk from the convention center to our hotel and walked it both ways. This photo, featuring one of the buses of TheBus transit system and the high rise office complex / penthouse / condominium combination at 1888 Kalakaua Ave was taken on the bridge across the Ala Wai drainage canal near the convention center.
TheBus is the public bus transportation service on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i. As of fiscal year 2012-2013, TheBus has a ridership of approximately 75.5 million boardings annually on its fleet of 518 buses, providing daily service on 110 routes. TheBus is a very popular means of travel by high school students, partly due to the fact that free school bus routes are not provided for the majority of Honolulu's students, as they are in many other parts in the United States.
As for living at 1888 Kalakaua Ave? These days, a 3-bedroom, 3,294-sq. ft condo will set you back $ 2,400,000; a studio will be much cheaper at around $ 660,000.
TheBus [Otobüs] Nerede?
Hawaii 2007 gezimizin ana nedeni Honolulu Kongre Merkezi'nde düzenlenen ASEE Yıllık Konferansıydı. Bizim otelden kongre merkezinin hoş bir ~ 20 dakikalık yürüyüş mesafesinde olduğunu öğrendim ve gidişgeliş yürüdüm. TheBus transit sistemi otobüslerden birine ve 1888 Kalakaua Cad. ofis kompleksi / Dublex / konut kombinasyonu gökdelene sahip bu fotoğraf, kongre merkezine yakın Ala Wai drenaj kanalı üzerindeki köprüden çekildi.
TheBus, Hawaii'nin O'ahu, adasında halk otobüsleri ulaşım hizmetidir. 2012-2013 mali yılı itibariyle, TheBusın 110 hattı üzerinde günlük hizmet veren 518 otobüslük filosunun yıllık yaklaşık 75,500,000 binişli bir yolcu kesimi vardır. TheBus kısmen de Honolulu'nun öğrencilerin çoğunluğu için Amerika Birleşik Devletleri'nin diğer pek çok bölgelerinde olduğu gibi bedava okul otobüsü güzergahları sağlanmadığından, lise öğrencileri arasında çok popüler bir araçtır.
1888 Kalakaua Caddede yaşamaya gelince mi? Bu günlerde, 3 yatak odalı, 3.294 ayak karelik konut [bütçenizi] 2.400.000 $ geri koyar; stüdyo apartman çok daha ucuzdur, 660,000 $ etrafında .

Good to see you back on the ground after a week :-)
Wonderful shot of this building with very modern architecture. The building makes good contrast with the clear blue sky. Good composition to include the colorful bus in the FG. Vivid colors clarity and sharpness.
Superb photo and thanks for sharing.

This is a truly spectacular and eye-catching photo, impossible to ignore. The building is a remarkable piece of modern architecture and it is well balanced in the composition by the colorful bus and the diagonal street with its yelow and white lines. The colors are generally bright and well treated and the photo has a very good clarity.

A lovely combination with the bus and the fantastic big building with modern architecture
You chose a very well angle this care for depth and perspective.
A nice composition, lovely colours, sharpness makes everything nice.
Very well done, TFS.

A well captured shot of this modern building, giving a strong graphical image. The POV is good, showing different sides of the building, and the wide angle makes it quite imposing. You've got the balance of the composition spot on, and the rainbow bus is a good add-on which you have captured at the right time. Lovely contrast to the pure blue sky. Well done.

I must admit, you are producing superb photos, you have a good eye for excellent photo composition. This is outstanding, first the choice of vertical format is perfect, then you have placed all major subject in excellent way, without disturbing each other and you have take care not to cut any element. I found only one small distraction (ha, ha can also criticize), namely the red part of sign board at the right. This I'd clone out. The arrangement with the toll building, colourful bus and two cars is fabulous, so is the color contrast. Well done indeed.

Nice sharp shot, interesting piece of architecture.

Street view with a high rise building in most attractive modern architecture-style. Personally I would not go and live in such dweling - to many residents you might not know your neighbours...
Fine clarity and depth, onto the height of the building, with palm-trees decorated in green on the boulevard.
Nice taken on a bright day.

Nice daily life shot from paradise. :-) We get a feeling of life in Honolulu, with the skyscrapers and efficient bus service. I like the rainbow on the back of the bus; I know that the Hawaiian license plate also has a rainbow on it. It's nice how all those palm trees line the streets, too.

Yikes, not sure I could even afford to breath the air in this part of town!? :)
Quite a fascinating architectural build here, the open space in the middle is certainly an eye-catching effect. Looks impressive though, and I'm sure a very nice place to live. The colorful back end of the bus fits in just right here...I mean, what would something in Hawaii be without a rainbow anyway, yeah? Island paradise.
Bright and colorful, well detailed and nicely composed. A pleasant view of the neighborhood. enjoy the day ahead.

I like very much the way you balanced this view of the impressive building with the perspective of the avenue, the bus and the car. Your composition is simple but rewarding, the complex is presented in all its splendor and details, the light is favourable and makes it even more attractive. Light and colours remind me very strongly of the southern suburbs of Athens. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the modern high building with a good shape and the colorful bus in the diagonal street. It's also impressive in coconuts trees standing on pavement, so we see that here is the place with warm climate. By the way, it looks like so expensive for condominium's price considering my feeling.

This futuristic building fits very well into the Parisian district of La Defense, I like it very much, beautiful photo with perfect depth and clarity

Cold bleak and snowing here in Ismit so a nice bright warm image with the coconut trees adding to the warm tropical look. The highrise building could be in China. Or many other large cities around the world. The donut hole adds interest and its good to see architects experimenting with new designs as the old rectangular boxes were quite visually boring. Tfs!

curious the shapes of this big building with this big hole inside. the image shows well the architecture with an excellent quality. TFS.
