Old Analog Santa Monica Pier

This is a photo I took at Santa Monica Pier (see original below) and then re-worked to give an analog black and white vintage effect in TopazLabs.

Vasquez Rocks – Aqua Dulce

Had a great trip out to Vasquez Rocks near Aqua Dulce last weekend. It was late afternoon but managed to get a few shots before the sun went down. It is definitely worth a trip.

Also, just down the road there is a Farm Sanctuary where you can visit for an hour or two and find out some very interesting, and sometimes disturbing, facts about the animals and how they arrived at the sanctuary. Definitely worth a visit and the folks at the sanctuary really do a great job in caring and looking after the animals.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great day out!!

Hermosa Sunset

Just posted this one on 500px. I stopped off on the way home in Hermosa near 22nd as the sun was going down. The sky was looking pretty dramatic. So wandered down to the ocean. Hope you like it…
