cliffs, fog and sunset.

it's wednesday - so me and the usual gang headed out for another photo outing. we were originally going to go to the santa monica mountains, but it's been really hot here and i whined that i didn't feel like hiking, sooo. we ended up at the beach again. this time in palos verdes.

brian had spotted portuguese bend on google earth. after looking it up, i also found point vicente, which was nearby. i then found some awesome sunset photos taken there and i was swayed. so i suggested we leave later so we could frolic until the sunset.

bad idea.

the path to portuguese point was blocked off. okay, fine. we find a place to park at this cove park area. we walk around...we see people on the beach. we walk around some more...finally find the pathway to the beach. then we realize the area closes at 4 (okay, first of all...a beach park closing at 4?!). by the time we get there, it is already 4. bummer. so we head down to point vicente. so far so good.

then the fog started rolling in.


who knew it gets this foggy in LA?! eesh.

we made the most of it. it was a very gorgeous scenic area. now if i could see the sunset there one day...it would be nice. ha.

photos from the day :)







after leaving the area and then eating, we headed to cabrillo beach, which we went once upon a time. not an area with a spectacular sunset, but 'twas fun anyhow.



(this will be on the cover of his new emo record. or not. but it looks very emo, doesn't it? haha!

oh. here's a digi i did last night :) i was totally inspired by some wallpaper i saw while flipping through some mag (i forget which) at target. loved the colors and they also had this flower motif...so i played with some jason gaylor brushes to customize that graph paper. fun stuff :)



i did this one for the user highlights on peas for national scrapbook day. i was thrilled when sande e-mailed me ! :)


have a good one :)

HA! I love that you got fog in LA. I am sorry your outing didn't go as planned. I love the LO you made from the wallpaper- it's really pretty! And you take incredible photos. Thank you for sharing your day with us.

Hey, my friend... you were in my OLD stomping grounds! I grew up in San Pedro and we belonged to the then-private Abalone Shore Club (below Wayfarer's Chapel) just past Portugese Bend and before Pt. Vicente. My sister lived (until recently) right there near Pt. Vicente... man, memories of good times (and fog!) and, yes... some damn good sunsets, too! :)
