My name is Erica, I'm a photographer, surf mama of 4, and wifey to Captain Ryan. Together we follow the waves from South Padre Island to Kauai to Mexico, sharing our time between three of our favorite places on earth. These are our adventures.
Hola & Aloha!
When people think of Hawaii they tend to picture miles and miles of empty beaches and crystal clear water. While that is definitely a part of Hawaii, we also have another side. Honolulu is a large city with traffic, skyscrapers, and yes, urban art (or graffiti as some would like to call it). Recently, a local group known as 808 Urban formed to help the youth of low-income communities through artwork. Businesses donate money to the organization and, in turn, have a mural painted (or spray painted) on their wall by local artists. Many of these businesses are concentrated in downtown Honolulu, which has resulted in a beautiful collection of unique artwork that is starting to be known as the urban art district.
