The beaches of Los Angeles have featured in many movies and TV Shows. The light blue wooden huts are lifeguard stations. Before seeing the beach I thought it would be great to capture on of these huts. To my surprise, Santa Monica Beach was more popular than I had imagine, the blue oil drum garbage bins were also an eyesore. The above photograph was taken from Santa Monica Pier looking south in the direction of Venice Beach. The sun was just setting over the Pacific ocean off to my right.
