After three hours at the first beach on Monday, we jumped into the van and drove down the coast. Eventually we stopped at Newport Beach with the idea we would walk out the pier.
Piers make good backdrops for portraits.
One kind or another, anyway.
I love taking pictures of people, especially ones I care about.
At the end of the pier, you can actually go down some stairs and walk around a bit underneath.
I enjoy finding patterns to take pictures of. Patterns like this.
I like taking artsy fartsy pictures that are almost abstract.
Underneath a pier there are patterns everywhere. In this picture, you can also see where one can walk right out to the edge. I guess this provides access for boats.
And then there are found obects (objet d’art).
But all good things come to an end.
Time to go shop.
