Beneath Santa Monica Pier IV


This is another view in the opposite direction of the photo of pilings with gull (link), my favourite image from the photo workshop I took in Los Angeles.

This metal detectorist (is that a word) is also in this photo

    • Hi Lynn – everything important is centered in this shot, and yet it doesn’t really feel that way to me. I think the slightly chaotic pilings and the footprints angled together to the right somehow disrupt the symmetry. I was waiting for a person to come by in the foreground but that never happened.


      • No, it doesn’t feel like a stark, balanced symmetry, I thought because it’s light on one side and dark on the other, but that’s a kind of balance too. OK, enough analyzing! 😉
