Fotoeins Friday: Santa Monica video performance

Is her name Monica? And if so, is her voice a holy aural delight?

I guess I’ll never know, as I photographed musician and videographer from a distance, and I didn’t summon the nerve to introduce myself and ask about the video. They could’ve been working a PR or marketing angle for the singer-songwriter. Or they might’ve been visitors like me. At the Santa Monica Pier in greater Los Angeles, there are sights and sounds, vibrant colours and excited people. My need to know in most cases gets me into trouble, but I can live with the mystery about these two.

I made the photo on 22 February 2012 with the Canon EOS450D, 70-300 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/200s, f/8, ISO100, 150mm focal-length (240mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8KV.

Changing views of the Santa Monica Pier

In greater Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Pier is a well-described attraction and visited by many. As a boy watching tv-show exteriors and locations from southern California, I’ve always wanted to visit Santa Monica and its Pier. Yes, the Pier is a tourist trap, but I cannot resist either beach or the ocean.

I was staying with friends living in Santa Monica, and on a warm sunny February afternoon, I walked to the Pier in 20 minutes, and spent a number of hours communing with the Pacific.

A walk along the promenade along Venice Beach promises the following:

  • a wide array of people, both residents living nearby and travelers from afar;
  • street art, street food, street wares;
  • and there’s always a surprise.
