This photograph was taken around New Years Eve 2016, a short while after sunset, using a long exposure which creates a silky ethereal effect on the water. The place is Shell Beach near Pismo Beach on the Central Coast of California. It’s a spectacular setting and well worth a visit. I recommend low tide to access more of the rocks and tide pools.

TribeLA Magazine Acrostic Interview.6
Time: What is your all-time favorite piece of writing/art/music youʼve created.
Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated by spaceships and exploration (hence my earlier choice of Griffith Observatory for favorite place in LA). So, when I found out about the penultimate mission for Space Shuttle Atlantis (aka STS-132), I jumped at the chance to see it by reserving a viewing spot at the Kennedy Space Center and flying to Florida for the take-off. I saw another Orbiter just after it landed at Edwards Air Force Base and then finally the Endeavour as it piggy bagged a NASA 747, circling LA on its lap of honor. At the time I worked at Fox, so I was able to get access to the helipad on Fox Plaza to capture the once in a lifetime occasion. The series of pics across these events probably ranks as my favorite to date.
