It's a Jungle Out There, Where is everybody? - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

They say "beauty is in the eyes of beholders".  I say an over-arching mantra is because we all look at things through our own "filters".  The fact is out there.  And yet, while we believe our own eyes, we can also be cheated by our eyes.  We each have this filter that affects how we see and feel about certain things and it may have been determined by our up-bringing, life experience, or anything that's unexplainable.

As the weather warms up, we plan our vacations.  Many dream of heading to the beaches.  One of the favorite is the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  When the season is right (or not), the view of the beach could seem like a sardine packing facility.  

I was there on one of those very days, when you'd run into tour buses or people or both any given second.  And yet, my filter brought me to make this image, of this "lone" man, when he's not quite "alone".  Do you have one of these experiences?

In Rush of Harvest before Sun-down - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I love traveling and this passion comes in many levels and for different reasons.  One of them, as I've also heard others describe similarly - the more places you travel to and the more people you meet, you realize how similar we all are in what we pursue in life, despite the differences in language, culture, and/or religion, etc.  

In the small fishing village of La Manzanilla, Mexico, it couldn't be demonstrated more perfectly, on one more level.  You see, before the sun sinks below the horizon, there's a hustle about getting the last piece of harvest in, whether by us human or the ubiquitous pelican in this little bay area.

What do you think?

I'm Not a Beach Photographer, Or Not - Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer

I've long confessed that I'm not a sunset photographer (please see here and here).  Did I also tell you that I'm not big on going to beaches, let alone taking photographs of them?  The oh-so-pretty white sand (in some cases, not even white) and blue water gets pretty boring for me after a 5-minute stare.  This also explains why I don't seek out beach locations for vacation ideas. Well, all that is about to change.  I stumbled upon this "photographer's paradise" one time and made it a point to visit.  Boy, oh boy, can I say that a short 10-minute walking distance of the beach consumed most of my afternoon.  Usually when time is forgotten (and companion forgotten as well - poor hubby), it's an indication of me in my photography heaven.

So, here's proof that I should not have shut myself out of the opportunities with a beach, AND at sunset.  What do you think?
