Description This is part of a collection of photos taken between Memorial Day and Labor Day in Santa Monica in 2008. The florescent green elements in this shot jump out of the frame creating a 3D effect. Tugging at eachother you want to know what is it they are discussing, joking about. Is one about to be thrown into the refreshing waves? We will never know, but we can imagine what comes next.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?
