1,000 Words

(Well maybe only 100 words)
Reaching yet another milestone in my journey as a published photograher, I will be featured in the 1,000 Words item in the Winter issue of the Broughton Hospitality magazine. In this feature, Suz Broughton features a photo accompanied by a short paragraph written by the photographer. Really they only want 100 words, which is fine by me.

Summer Scenes - Santa Monica Pier

Wednesday July 2nd, 2008 – 6:10 pm, Santa Monica California. Summer warmth, the sun just starting its downward descent. The pier full with summer activity, swimmers and lookers, taking advantage of a long relaxing week heading into the July 4th holiday which this year would land on Friday. Sandals, hats, mats, umbrellas, all available for the unprepared or those just wanting a useful memento. Ice cream, soda, funnel cakes, ready to fill summer stomachs. Instants, 1/160th of a second freeze frame moments, race by. Some uninteresting, many confused, others empty. Bursts of heightened interest go unnoticed. Flashes of brilliance missed. Occasionally, all too seldom, life and the photographer align.
