Beach City, Wake Up!

The area near the pier is dressed in its finest as the early morning sun breaks through the mist. In the gallery below are a few more photos from my visit to Santa Monica Beach this past Sunday. The photo of Camera Obscura now has me curious, and prompts a return visit, as it was closed for refurbishing.

The somber scene in these two pictures is of what’s known as Arlington West, with a worker preparing the sand for the day’s visitors.

This closes my three-part series of Santa Monica Beach waking up! If you missed them, part one and part two and a Foto Fix, are linked here. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    Camera Obscuras are great fun and well worth a visit. If it is like the ones I have been to in Dumfries and Edinburgh, you will think for a moment that you are watching a picture postcard and then you will realise that things are moving in the picture. It is quite eerie at first.

    Good angle and composition in particular for #19.

    love these photos, they really capture the spirit of santa monica. One of my brothers used to live there and I was able to visit several times. I loved it. Out of all of LA, I would take Santa Monica or Malibu in a heartbeat. Great photos thanks for sharing.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
