Yesterday George & I were taken to the site of the very first Library on Maui.
It is a very off road, quaint, very functional, 25-cents-a-book kind of place.
I bought a book for $2 and two books@ 25 cents.
But it wasn't the Maui Friends of the Library building that was so spectacular to me, but the road getting there that really caught my attention.
I was seeing a raw, gritty, dusty, and run down part of Maui that most visitors here never see nor want to see. The surrounds of the sugar mill, which is very active and productive, I find fascinating, wistful, and parts of it, sadly forgotten. It raises all the usual questions: what were things used for, why are they here now, and what will become of them???
Where to start?
Well, let's start with the numbers. I photographed quite a few.
This is some kind of harvester. There are two drivers seats on the platform.
Red is a frequent color with this company.
An alley as rich in color as in Italy, but oh, such a different ambience.
The church for the mill community.
The next batch: random & abandoned.
