You'd never know that this shot was taken inside the tchotchke filled International Marketplace in Waikiki. If you work your way past the racks of shell lei, pineapple barrettes and refrigerator magnets you'll find a shady center courtyard, a koi pond, and the trunk of the huge banyan tree that embraces the market.

        I love "secret" places like this - it's amazing where you can find them if you just look.

        Looks like we both had Hawaii on the brain this week. Like Mara, I love finding the hidden spots in otherwise ordinary places. Kids are the best at helping us find them too. My son slows me down enough to actually look at where I am going.

        I love Koi ponds! Its funny that it would be in such a weird places though. I wonder how many people pass and not even notice.
