There is no more appropriate photo for this blog this week than this one. For the few days, I'm "on the beach," at least in my mind, even if I'm sitting in my air-conditioned apartment typing these words. It's downtime for me, and I couldn't be happier.
This particular beach is Santa Monica, and the shot was taken from the Santa Monica Pier. One night I happened upon a photo shoot for something and just started snapping my own photos. I don't know where this eventually ended up, but I was happy to sponge off it as the sun set and this little tableau was presented to me.
