Under the Pier

“My life is like a stroll on the beach… as near to the edge as I can go.”
-Thoreau


    When I first moved to California, I really did not expect the dreamy, fast-paced, frustrating, beautiful and curious way of life here.
    Sometimes there are days when the soul-sucking traffic makes me want to pull my hair out! Other times the ten minute trip to the beach on a sunny 75 degree day in January watching surfers and children makes me never want to look away. California is a place that takes and gives equally.
    I would like to see it for what it is. In all it’s grunge and glory.
    These pictures express just a small fraction of a Southern California life.
