That’s a shot taken while sitting at one of my favorite places, Candle Cafe, in one of my favorite places, Venice Beach, CA. It’s a great place to relax while watching people. And eating of course.
If you’ve never visited Venice Beach I highly suggest it. It’s a diverse area that includes people of all socioeconomic groups, all nationalities…..really, you have the heroin addicted street dwellers, next to the hard-body LA image folk wanting to be seen, tourists doing the seeing, street performers, along with vender stalls, shops, restaurants, the beach!, and the smells and sounds that accompany each.
One night I was walking from the Candle on the north end of the boardwalk to my hotel on the southern end and came upon a drum circle under the palm trees. Exhilarating!
This is Rocky, he was a regular at the Candle a few years ago.
