Close-ups are fine. Detail is good. But telephoto shots show more – the patterns of life – and all telephotos shots are candid shots. The observer is far away, unnoticed, so there's no posing. There's more truth. These are shots from or in Palisades Park, Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, looking down on Pacific Coast Highway and out across the beach to the bay and beyond. This is how things are. ~ Thursday, September 12, 2019
