Santa Monica & Venice Beach Boardwalk, once again. Next time we're going to do something different because I'm feeling all beached out.
This was a fun day with some cool moments, and maybe a couple of uncool moments. It's very rare for me to get into any sort of altercation with anybody while out shooting, but there was a man on the Santa Monica pier selling those cheap balloons on a stick that tourists seem to like to buy for their kids. I was going for a shot of the balloons and the man straight lost it and began to make a spectacle of himself. Apparently he felt that I was breaking the law by shooting him, and threatening his business. The sad part of all of this is that I wasn't shooting him at all, I was interested in the balloons! Once he started to gesticulate and worry himself he suddenly became interesting and so, yeah, I shot him. You might feel your own way about situations such as these, and I'd be more than happy to debate this with you at your convenience.
If you're in LA or plan to be, hit and like my Facebook page. I add an LA photowalk event on a near-monthly basis. Come play!
