Weekly Winners: April 26-May 2

There is nothing like a trip to the beach to make your day seem fine.

Unless it's Venice Beach, in which case, things might get a little weird:

Yes, this was a real live guy who truly was spray-painted gold. Ah, well, when in Venice, do what the Californians do: Get a henna tattoo!

After the Grilled Cheese Invitational and
before jetting back to the Land of Monkeys and Princesses,
Rachel got into the spirit of Venice Beach.

A walk on the beach can bring many opportunities for photos, especially for someone as water-obsessed as me:

The waves crashing photos are stunning. I had to look very closely at the gold painted guy, that was a little creepy. Fun set, and I'm jealous you got to hang out with Rachel.

I love the sailboat. The gold guy reminds me of that fairy tale...Midas? Everything he touches turns to gold.

I'm sort of pouting because I wish I could have been there with you. Gold guy and all. (I've seen silver guy, but wow! Gold guy is, well, very gold.)

Beautiful and stunning--the only words to describe the photos of the crashing waves.

Karen said...

I love the ocean, and you've got some great shots of it. Sadly, I can't get the freaky gold guy out of my mind. He's just sitting in the way of the view.
