[R] How to plot log histograms?

Q: Is there an easy way to plot log histograms?

The command "hist" draws a standard histogram with observed frequency on the
y-axis.  I would like to be able to draw the log frequency on the y-axis,
but I can't see whether I can use "hist" for this.  The purpose of such a
plot is to see whether data are normal or Laplace or something else.

- and the same question for kernel density estimates using "density".

many thanks in advance
