Description This is a view of Santa Monica Beach north of the pier. In the distance you can see Palisades Park as well as part of the city of Santa Monica. As you gaze down towards the activities in the beach you can hear the laughter from the families and friends frolicking in the surf. Visualize the spray of the salty ocean as it wafts past you, lost in the moment of pure bliss.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?
