Hermosa Beach – One Minute on Earth Project – June 21st, 2014

I took this shot on Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach yesterday as part of the One Minute on Earth photo project with Kujaja.com. Everyone takes a photo at exactly the same time around the world. Then Kujaja will put together a book where all the proceeds go to helping a children’s orphanage in Cape Town South Africa!! I’ll keep you posted on the progress…
