Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (City of Refuge)

Here something for all you B&W officinados, taken with my cell phone and spruced up with Impression and B&W effects. The City of Refuge, on the Big Island, was a “safe house” for Hawaiians who broke kapa (screwed up in some manner). The offender would be absolved by a priest and freed to leave. The real problem though was simply getting there, something not easily done even by car.


I like the BW and painted look with the photo. It is an interesting place.

Nice result and interesting story.
