VENICE BEACH


We took time from our busy business schedule to visit some local color. Venice Beach is always
chock full of interesting events, not to mention lots of people to watch.


I noticed at least four different productions being filmed. Three video crews and one still shoot.


This photographer spoke English but everyone else including the models spoke Spanish so I'm assuming it was a Spanish fashion shoot.

                                                              Typical Venice Beach scene.


                                                                     A kids commercial.

This homeless gent had a sign that read, "I'm homeless Please Help" here he's taking a pizza break to check email on his smartphone.            You can't be homeless if you have a GPS location.





        There are a number of great R. Cronk murals down side streets. Here Homage to Starry Night



One of the many marijuana "medical" doctors on stand by. Forty bucks and your sob story will
get you a prescription and you can pick up a baggie right next door. I didn't shoot the actual medical
marijuana facility as they were quite full and the "patients" may have felt jittery about a camera lurking about. There's one of these doctor/stores every two hundred feet. I stopped counting after six locations. Very popular on the beach. You can tell you're about to come up on one just by the change of seaside perfume to "eau di maryjane"


                   He's actually playing around with a pipe - maybe he's with the research department.

St. Mark The Patron Saint of Venice.


Today I'm heading off to San Francisco - I'll be posting pics the end of next week.


Thanks for stopping by.
