If you haven’t been following the work of my bud Jesse Pafundi, you should definitely start now. He’s been posting some great little sets that really tell the story of a day or location – awesome stuff. With that said, this post of mine was 100% inspired by what Jesse has been doing.
Lahaina is a great little town on the western coast of Maui – we were told it is a must visit, and we weren’t disappointed. Not only does it have one of the coolest town parks I’ve ever seen in Banyan Tree Park, but the main streets have some great places for both shopping and eating. We spent a good portion of an afternoon just cruising the streets and I did what I could to capture a little piece of the town with my 50mm. Oh, and we had a meal at Cheeseburger in Paradise – hard to pass on a name like that.
– Canon EOS 5D Mark II
– Canon 50mm f/1.4
– Black¤Rapid RS-4 Camera Strap (this camera strap changed my life)

A great way to get a feel for your trip! I like the air conditioning shot a lot.
Great set Heath – always a fan, as you know, of walk-around posts…you did great telling a little story here!
So. Good. Humbled by the shout out my friend. This is just an awesome set. I wish I did this when I was there. You did a great job of capturing the nuances of Lahaina.
What a great series Heath. Brings back memories of my trip there many years ago. The 50 prime was the perfect lens for these shots, and I really dig the processing.
Great set Heath! Thanks for sharing your day with us!
Great set of image man!
Woooo, love these man! Nice job…
Great job Heath.
I was waiting for the shaved ice shot. Interesting sign too about the cats. Cats are a big deal in Hawaii. A big deal in a bad way unfortunately.
great series, feels like I’ve been there.
Nice story telling! I love shave ice. Mmmm! Could go for one now!
Really nice set of images Heath. I really like the perspective on the park shot.
Thanks for posting these shots and the others from Maui. Loved it when we went. So many photo ops, so little time:)
Awesome set Heath! Really get the feel of the place!
Ahhhhh Lahaina. I love this town! This is a great set, mate.
Got very distracted by the link to the Black Rapid strap…looks pretty cool. Otherwise, awesome set of shots with great depth – that 50mm worked a treat here.
What an awesome set of shots here man, looks beautiful!
Loving everything in this series. Congrats on your R-strap, by the way. =)
