Week 07 Santa Monica Beach

I was for business in California and decide to stay the weekend on Santa Monica beach. I’ve been there before but felt I wasn’t ready yet with it.

I arrived on a nice Friday afternoon in February. On Saturday I rented a bicycle and visited two food markets. I then drove the bike from the  upper North to Marina del Rey and back.

On Sunday I had to fly back but there was time to go to the Getty.

Because there are quit a few pictures I’ve put them in chapters.

Buildings and Details.

I didn’t expect to find so many very nice buildings along side old and decaying buildings. The colors are very attractive also.

Beach and Pier

The beach and Pier are very attractive. There is always happening something.

Like these two fishers scaring each other

The Market

I always thought of the USA as the junk food country. I was very surprised by the very nice and fresh food on the two food markets I visited

Lovers

I know it is a bad habbit but I spy on lovers, especcially kissers.

Well, at the pier there are so many that it is hard not to photograph them. They are all over the place

  1. de eerste 4 secties vind ik bijzonder mooi, michiel.

    de combinaties van kleur en compositie zijn erg sterk.

    mischien een zaterdag op de markt in dh. de kleuren van fruit en groenten en mensen!

    de volgende keer in la, moet je 12 uur bij de Getty blijven; zon op tot ondergang.

    b.

  2. Wonderful composition…refreshing to see your perspective on the glitzy high end Santa Monica area. Your composition, use of color and the afternoon & early evening light was excellent. I lived in the San Frncisco area for 20 years and never saw the type of images you have portrayed of this Southern California city.

    BRAVO!!!
