Perch street view

Perch street view

As someone who isn't very tall, I always wonder what the view is like for other (taller) people. I think that's why I like to look up. Too many times I have the bad habit of looking down or looking at nothing. Hard to ignore the nighttime view of downtown LA along Hill Street.

El Segundo sunset

El Segundo sunset

I was trying to catch the sun before it went down. I headed west to the ocean. The street overlooking the water had other sunset watchers, snapping their own shots of Mother's Nature show. Taken: Mar., 2 2014

Sunset over Manhattan Beach pier

Sunset over Manhattan Beach pier

I was watching the photographer on the sand and saw he was pointing his camera at this direction. He actually moved to the spot closer to the pier when I shot him. I couldn't help but wonder what he was looking at when he saw this sunset. Taken: Jan. 7, 2014

Manhattan Beach Pier

Manhattan Beach Pier

I decided to use my Canon DSLR for this shot, something I haven't used in since the summer. That day I was slowly getting over a cold so my hearing was muffled. I couldn't hear the waves as they came to shore, but the colors from this sunset felt so much more vibrant and alive. Makes me wonder if one sense is not fully working do the other senses heighten in order to make up for it? Taken: Jan. 8, 2014

Naples Canal

We live by the sun; we love by the moon. A nighttime stroll along the Napes canals in Long Beach turned into a crescent moon sighting. Taken: Jan. 4, 2014
