Description Blue on Blue. The sky lights up in a vibrant and powerful blue haze. The water, transluscent and calm. The distance between you and the people makes it difficult to make out the conversations being said, but you can hear their chatter none-the-less. What is being said? This photo was taken looking south at Santa Monica beach towards Venice Beach. This is part of a collection of photos taken between Memorial Day and Labor Day in Santa Monica in 2008.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?
