I didn't quite get the sun in the exact position I wanted, but I think I did pretty good considering that the car was moving at about 55 mph. Is it just me, or are sunsets more brilliant over the desert?
This is a view of the Santa Monica Pier from the road. It was like a time warp on the pier, with sidewalk performers and tiny shops crowded in along the walkway. Fishermen lined the rails. While we were there a small sting ray was pulled up and returned to the water.
I don't know what those people were taking pictures of, there was nothing out there. They were the more interesting subject in my opinion. I tried to get this picture in color but it came out washed out so I switched the camera to black and white (one of my favorite features on the Cybershot) and came up with this. I posted a different version of this picture in the earlier entries of this journal but have since aquired a program that allowed me to clean it up a little better. I occasionally go back and try reworking older pictures but most times I'll find that the original was the better picture. This was the exception, today's attempt produced a more intence contrast.
