Another week, another beach
I do have more pictures, but I'm writing to you right now from a hotel room next to LAX. I'm in LA for a class for work, and I'm in the picturesque neighborhood literally right next to the runway. Lovely. I managed to stay awake for my whole first day of class, and it's a whole lot more interesting then I'd expected. Usually engineering classes are super dull, but our teacher is totally entertaining.
When we got out of class, I discovered that there is actually a trolley that goes from a stop in front of my hotel, right to the beach! So for the second time in less then a week, this Arizona girl dug her toes in cool sand and watched the waves. This water is WAY different then the Caribbean. California's water is gray and cold to the Riviera Maya's gorgeous water of every color blue you can imagine. But the Caribbean has nothing on California's amazing golden light before sunset. I've decided the reason California wedding/portrait photographers get so much attention is because they're given this gift of magic light every day. We don't get that in AZ.
So for the next few days, I plan to see at least 2 more golden sunsets on the pier with my book, then it's back to real life and the return of vacation blogging.
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
