Ala Wai by CMWVisualArts Ala Wai by CMWVisualArts

ABOUT



The Ala Wai, the most dangerous and poisonous waters of Hawaii. Filled with toxic liquids from sewage and chemical dumps. While it looks fine at first glance, a closer look shows deformed fish and garbage below the surface. In some cases, even chemical barrels.

"A swim in the Ala Wai is a swim with Death himself."

However, the reflection of the city lights look nice on the water. :)



TOOLS



Kodak EasyShare V1253
Photoshop Essentials 8

I saw this and thought, "wow, what a beautiful picture!" and then I read the description...

Lol, out of curiosity I searched for this place on Google. 48 million gallons of untreated sewage? GROSS.

A person fell in there and died of septic shock. It's a shame there's no guardrails.

I Googled it and the article that popped up said that the guy had existing wounds and the bacteria infected him. :/

A guy got pushed in there a while back.
He was dead before they pulled him up.

He was killed later - it was all gang related.
