LA Co. Lifeguard Towers "Summer of Color" - AC (2/158) in Palos Verdes

Abalone Cove at sunset - 25 June 2010
"Summer of Color"- AC, Rancho Palos Verdes
Abalone Cove is one of two beaches in PV with a lifeguard station (the other is RAT beach). Jim, the friendly lifeguard who loves the beauty of this cove, was getting ready to close up. Jim didn't wish to be photographed but he was very happy to talk. He told me that he liked the new transformed "tower" colors just as much as the original pale blue (as seen HERE), and that the overall opinion of the "Summer of Color" has been positive.

A camera shy life-guard. What would happen if he saved someone and the local press wanted to cover the story?

The tower/shack does look groovy! Love the 'above'/first shot - it cries for a groovy lifeguard tower. Can't wait to see MORE of them!

What a sight. Your shot of the cove would make a great travel illustration. I love the close up, too and the whole idea of the Summer of Color. This is so cool. Just way cool!

I'm liking the Summer of Color!

That would be one big summer project to photograph them all.
