Sunday in Santa Monica

I love Sundays -- especially when I'm in Santa Monica.  It's quiet, little traffic noise, I walk to the local grocery store to get my copy of the Los Angeles Times, and often walk around the neighborhood for a few pictures.  There's always something to photograph in Santa Monica. 

Happy Poppies

Under the Vons sign at Lincoln Blvd. and Broadway, the poppies bloom.  One poppy has a green wriggly guest lounging in the warm sunshine.
Shimmering Calla Lily
Along Broadway, east of Lincoln Blvd. there are quietly stunning flowers and greenery.

Sunday afternoon in the park.
 Pacific Palisades park overlooks the beach. 
Spring starts early in Santa Monica


Catalina from Santa Monica beach. 
Catalina Island, where so many movies have been filmed (especially in the early decades of cinema), is usually only visible from Santa Monica in December when there's no marine layer to shroud it from view.  It was a delight to see the island (just a background shadow behind the roller coaster) especially on the same day as the Academy Awards ceremony this year.  Seemed appropriate.
