DescriptionA beautiful abstract photograph of Santa Monica Beach. In the distance is Palisades Park, made famous in many Hollywood movies. The classic Lifeguard Station off to the right provides a focal point to the viewer allowing the eye to travel downward towards the activities on the beach. Can you count the different families? Can you hear the conversations that are being had on this hot summer day? Imagine for a moment you are in this scene. Picture yourself about to enter the surf or strike up a convesation with a person in this photo. Allow your imagination to take you here.To view a larger image visit my website www.tom-hawkins.com
Tom Hawkins, Santa Monica Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Please enjoy my Unique Photographic Art of beach scenes from around the world. The images in this gallery are beach scenes from Australia and California. Simple scenes of families and friends enjoying themselves while at a day at the beach. The Australian pictures were taken during Christmas at Bondi and Bronte Beach in 2005. The California pictures were taken at Santa Monica during the summer of 2008.
Imagine yourself within each scene; the hot sun blazing down at you, the scent of the salty air as it wafts past you, the smell of suntan lotion and the sounds of families enjoying themselves at the beach. As you stare at each photo see if you can listen in on the conversations being had on the beach. What do you hear?
