Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

Punchbowl Cemetery Few national cemeteries can compete with the dramatic natural setting of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The Punchbowl was formed some 75,000 to 100,000 years ago during the Honolulu period of secondary volcanic activity. A crater resulted from the ejection of hot lava through cracks in the old coral reefs which, at the time, extended to the foot of the Koolau Mountain Range.

During the late 1890s, a committee recommended that the Punchbowl become the site for a new cemetery to accommodate the growing population of Honolulu. The idea was rejected for fear of polluting the water supply and the emotional aversion to creating a city of the dead above a city of the living.

Fifty years later, Congress authorized a small appropriation to establish a national cemetery in Honolulu with two provisions: that the location be acceptable to the War Department, and that the site would be donated rather than purchased. In 1943, the governor of Hawaii offered the Punchbowl for this purpose. The $50,000 appropriation proved insufficient, however, and the project was deferred until after World War II. By 1947, Congress and veteran organizations placed a great deal of pressure on the military to find a permanent burial site in Hawaii for the remains of thousands of World War II servicemen on the island of Guam awaiting permanent burial. Subsequently, the Army again began planning the Punchbowl cemetery; in February 1948 Congress approved funding and construction began.

Prior to the opening of the cemetery for the recently deceased, the remains of soldiers from locations around the Pacific Theaterincluding Wake Island and Japanese POW campswere transported to Hawaii for final interment. The first interment was made Jan. 4, 1949. The cemetery opened to the public on July 19, 1949, with services for five war dead: an unknown serviceman, two Marines, an Army lieutenant and one civiliannoted war correspondent Ernie Pyle. Initially, the graves at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific were marked with white wooden crosses and Stars of Davidlike the American cemeteries abroadin preparation for the dedication ceremony on the fourth anniversary of V-J Day. Eventually, over 13,000 soldiers and sailors who died during World War II would be laid to rest in the Punchbowl.

Despite the Armys extensive efforts to inform the public that the star- and cross-shaped grave markers were only temporary, an outcry arose in 1951 when permanent flat granite markers replaced them. A letter from the Quartermaster General to Senator Paul Douglas in December 1952, explained that while individual markers are inscribed according to the appropriate religious faith:

Crosses do not mark the graves of the dead of our country in other national cemeteries. No cross marks the burial of our revered Unknown Soldier. From Arlington to Golden Gate, from Puerto Rico to Hawaii, the Governments markers in national cemeteries for all our herodead are of the traditional designs[s]ome are upright and some are flat. None is in the form of a religious emblem.

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was the first such cemetery to install Bicentennial Medal of Honor headstones, the medal insignia being defined in gold leaf. On May 11, 1976, a total of 23 of these were placed on the graves of medal recipients, all but one of whom were killed in action. The Punchbowl has become one of the areas most popular tourist destinations. More than five million visitors come to the cemetery each year to pay their respects to the dead and to enjoy the panoramic view from the Punchbowl. One of the most breathtaking views of the Island of Oahu can be found while standing at the highest point on the craters rim.

In August 2001, about 70 generic unknown markers for the graves of men known to have died during the attack on Pearl Harbor were replaced with markers that included USS Arizona after it was determined they perished on this vessel. In addition, new information that identified grave locations of 175 men whose graves were previously marked as unknown resulted in the installation of new markers in October 2002. The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

Monuments and Memorials

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific contains a memorial pathway that is lined with a variety of memorials that honor Americas veterans from various organizations. As of 2008, there were 56 such memorials throughout the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacificmost commemorating soldiers of 20th-century wars, including those killed at Pearl Harbor.

Maui Luxury Real Estate Photography

We opted to photograph this luxury lodging as dusk. It turned out to be the right call, as the lighting, feathery clouds and momentary stillness made for absolute magic for a brief moment.Sunsets are very fleeting in this location close to the equator, and the moment was lost in minutes.

Fullscreen 360 virtual tours were used to present the luxury lodging in its entirety. We were able to show the open spaces and how the indoor and outdoor spaces melded in this beautiful retreat.

Once again, still photography was used to bring attention to the beautiful inside and outside spaces.

Once completed, a narrated video will evoke the magic and romance of this home that will beckon with a hint of drama, a dash of romance and with a promise of appealing to all your senses.

This dwelling is one of only 4 beachfront properties available in prestigious Kapalua, Maui. A contemporary architectural masterpiece, it was a pleasure to photograph this lodging. We tried to capture the ambiance, location, and the many architectural features of this luxury Hawaiian Retreat through a combination of aerial panoramas and lots of still photos taken during the day, afternoon, evening and night.

Our aerial 360 virtual tours capture the magnificent oceanfront setting of this fabulous villa. Our full screen virtual tours also fabulously showcased the 18 foot disappearing Sapele corner pocket doors, and the fabulous wood detail on the ceilings.

Maui Luxury Real Estate Photography

Resort Photography

PanaViz real estate photographer would like to share some luxury Maui real estate that we have photographed here. Our 360 virtual tours, real estate photographs and home videos are displayed in our full screen viewer and are designed to work on desktops and mobile devices.

Hualalai Resort

PanaViz photographed this luxury home in the Hualalai Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. We produced a series of 360 degree full screen virtual tours as well as a collection of still images to visually present this property fully.

We decided to shoot the virtual tours in the evening, primarily to showcase the exterior of the home, its glassy pool in the evening, and its proximity to the ocean. The 360 panoramas have a decidedly painterly feel to them.

The architectural still photographs were shot in the day and at dusk. They showcase the many interesting spaces of this home, and the twilight images turned out very particularly well!

Maui Luxury Home

PanaViz showcased this ultra luxurious 2 acre estate with a combination of rich media. We created 360 degree virtual tours, high dynamic range architectural still photographs and a narrated video to tell the visual story of this luxury property. This luxury estate overlooks the PGA Kapalua Plantation Golf Course, and looks over the Ritz Carlton Hotel and out to the Pacific Ocean.

Our challenge was to capture this 6200 sq foot home in one day, with 3 different types of photography and in difficult lighting conditions. We opted to use panoramic photography to present the open layout of the property and to give a sense of the flow of the home.

Exclusive Maui Resort Home

This was an exciting property to shoot. This luxury rental has lofty, open spaces and an eclectic decor.

Our challenge was to showcase fully this 5 bedroom, 7 bath villa that rents for up to $60,000 a week. This home is truly unique, with sweeping views, gorgeous architecture, great decor and lovely artwork.
