Postcards from the Edge…

IMG_2569

 

“Wish you were here…” 

Doesn’t just about every postcard you ever got start or end with this sentiment? I am not sure how many people actually send postcards these days, and I suppose our camera phones and wireless smart devices have replaced them almost entirely. I think of my travel photographs as “postcards”… they are a way to mentally transport me, and those I share them with, to another place entirely. In this case, it’s the edge of the western U.S.–at the beach at Santa Monica in California. With gray skies and freezing temps over most of the country, and in many other places in the globe, I thought this warm, picturesque scene might ward off winter’s chill–if not in body, at least in spirit. Hope you enjoy…
