Unlike most museums, the Contemporary Arts Museum at Makiki is extremely photographer- and Lomographer-friendly. There are lots of interesting things to see and photograph. If you ever have the chance to drop by for a visit, don’t forget this arts museum!
Out of town and up in the hills of Makiki Heights near Honolulu is the Contemporary Arts Museum at Makiki. Once you get there, you’ll quickly discover that this used to be a very large residential home which has been converted into a museum. You’ll also find that unlike a lot of stuffy museums, this one is cool with you taking photographs in and around the grounds.
On this day I took my LC-A+ and had it loaded with Lomography Redscale XR film. What I wanted out of the trip was a nice quiet walk around the grounds of the museum. The grounds are amazing and features a lot of art out in the open getting weathered by the sun, rain and wind. There is a long path that you can follow which is very much in the mode of a Japanese garden. There is also a cafe at the museum near the graffiti area if you need to rest and change film. On my next trip there I plan to explore the inside galleries; maybe on a rainy day.
As I mentioned earlier, they are photo friendly. That is pretty important to us lomographers! On the day I was there I counted three professional photographers. One had a couple in tow and was photographing them. The other two were lugging tons of gear around to snap images of the grounds. There were also a handful of people with iPhones taking pictures around every corner. So me with my little tiny LC-A+ felt rather covert.

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
