I love being a tourist in my own hometown and that’s basically what we did over the weekend. Granted, Long Beach, California is a distinct and separate entity from good old LA, but it’s still in Los Angeles County and it’s only a quick trip down the 405. (“quick trip down the 405” is an oxymoron, I realize, but we were able to do it during off hours so it was only 45 minutes). Next time we might take the train from NoHo to Long Beach but that’s for more advanced public transportation users. We are defiantly sophomoric in our abilities. Give us the Prius and the freeway and we are there!
Anyway, there is nothing cooler to photograph than ships. The whole nautical theme, the ocean, the skylines…they are all just begging to be documented. Everywhere you point the camera…there is an interesting shot.
The Queen Mary also happens to be a great example of Art Deco styling and of course, there are the big red smoke stacks. It’s a beautiful, fun place to spend the day or the weekend. Here are some of my instagram shots
I want a porthole window at the Little Cinderblock House….just because.
More LB skyline.
The marble floor decor.
Air? Not sure what this is, but it’s RED!
Geometry at it’s best!
Of course, it’s always nice to have a nice looking man on your arm. The very best accessory!
See what I mean?! Bon Voyage Queen Mary. Until next time.
