Laguna Beach’s Main beach is one of the great beaches anywhere. The lifeguard tower pictured has come to represent Laguna Beach. We call it the Icon. It wasn’t always a lifeguard tower. It started life as the office of the gas station across the street from Main beach.

A lot of photo blogs like to give you the details in great detail. Me I’ll give you the camera, Nikon D40X; and the lens, Nikkor 18mm-70mm F3.5-4.5 G AF-S DX. 95% of my photos are shot between 18mm and 24mm. I use aperture priority using to the highest possible f-stop while trying to stay … [Read more…]
I haven’t abandoned this blog. I have been working on another blog – http://www.lagunabeat.com/. I have been slow at upgrading this blog – I admit it.
