The sun was in Hollywood. It wasn't at the beach – driving the few miles down to a quiet section of Playa Del Rey was driving into a wall of murk. That's June out here – the hot sun is brilliant in the empty sky, and the Pacific is deadly cold, so there's that thick marine layer each morning. It only burns off inland. And that makes the June beach a spooky place. It's a Raymond Chandler thing.

These photographs were taken with a Nikon D200 – the lenses used were AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto. The high-resolution photography here was modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
