I took this photo of the lone lifeguard station at Abalone Cove Beach two Sundays ago. The station is awaiting summer to open up again.
In taking the photo, I followed what I could remember of Babooshka's instructions on shooting steps, "Just stand squarely in front of the subject." I like the outcome.
Today the weather is more like below - taken looking from El Segundo towards Palos Verdes (hill in the background) with Manhattan Beach pier showing most prominantly.
