A big screen and chairs are set up in the Honolulu Academy of Art’s tranquil courtyard and it turns into a lovely soirée.”

Fritz Johnson, Jr., architect
Aaron Yoshino, photographer, honozooloo.com

What in the World??

Friday, September 26th, 2008

While on my way to work on this beautiful aloha friday morning, I couldn’t help but notice this guy driving in front of me. Does anything unusual catch your eye in this picture?? I find it rather amazing that this Hawaii driver was cruising on the H-1 freeway and through downtown Honolulu surface streets with a towel completely draped over his rear view mirror, covering it entirely. I couldn’t resist, I just had to take a picture of this while we were stopped at a red light. Who says Hawaii people can’t drive??? Who needs mirrors anyway??? Mirrors are for rookies!

Go ahead and click on the picture above to see the super sized image.
