Manhattan Beach, CA


Manhattan Beach Pier is probably the most popular ‘under the pier’ spots in LA. First, I waited for young lovebirds to finish their selfies. And then a young mom trying to photograph her baby daughter afraid of water. Surfers were crowding both sides of the pier to ride relatively high waves. Then it was my turn. I patiently waited for the waves to crash against the pier pillars. Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet, said Aristotle. When I walked away, a half naked male model started posing for a photographer, while a couple also stepped in for their engagement photos.
