Koko Crater Botanical Gardens in Black and White

A prime location for taking photos, the Koko Crater Botanical Gardens is a place for lovers of nature. Prior to meeting my friend @nigelk, I had never been to the botanical gardens. He suggested it as a place for us to explore and get to know our cameras. Read on to learn more about it!

At the time that I took these photos, this was the first [good] black and white roll of film that I had ever used. Being a newbie, I wanted to conserve it. However, I regret doing that because the botanical gardens was a great place for taking photos!

The Kokohead Crater Gardens contains plants from all over the world on an easy path that is roughly about 2 miles long. There are countless things to take pictures of, be it a tree, a flower, or your friends!

The photo above shows @kayswirl in the middle of a six-petaled plumeria that I found. (Usually, plumerias have only five petals.) One of my favorite trees is the plumeria tree. The flowers that grow on it come in white, yellow, and pink. However, you can’t tell from the black and white photos haha.

Around the path, there are occasional trucks, huts, and other things that you can use to take photos with:

(Like this ladder!)

There are so many interesting things in this garden that I couldn’t begin to explain them all to you. So in a way, it’s good that there aren’t too many photos in this article because that means that you’ll have to stop by and see for yourself how beautiful it is!

So come visit, and don’t forget to bring your camera!
