Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

Post a Week, Post A Day                                                   2013/07/09

When I get nostalgic I would load my bike on the back of my car and drive down to Santa Monica Beach and park, take my bike off then ride down to Venice Beach. There is a nice bike/roller blade concrete trail down to Venice Beach, that goes to points further South and the same to the North of Santa Monica.. There was always something going on at Venice Beach and plenty to see.. It helps take my mind off what ever I’m fixated on. In other words gets me out of my head. Here are some photos that I’ve taken down a Venice Beach area. There are a lot of place to grab a bite to eat if your hungry.

This guy has been doing this for as long as I can remember. He has electric guitar with speakers, I believe they are battery operated. I’ve seen him in a couple of movies as an extra. It is an enjoyment to watch and listen to him. He just roller skates around the area playing his guitar.

I’ve only have seen this person a couple of times . I really don’t know that much about him but was worth taking his picture.

There is a clothing store and on the weekends there are male models out in front of the store.  They are like mimes but I think that is wrong word  these models stand in one place and don’t move. I guess they are more like a human dummies.

This was just a distraction and pretty at that.

You never know what your going to see. These young ladies are all dress up for something but I don’t know what. They were eye catching in their garb, so much so I had to take a photo.

Someone put this curly red head doll in the water fountain.

At the time I took this picture I believed that the baby in this picture was a doll. Now that I look at this picture again I’m not sure. Because I thought it was a doll is why I took this photo.

I’ve posted this a few times because I like the colors,configuration, and the symmetry of the kites

This were I go when I feel Nostalgic – Well I use to go, I’m on the East Coast now and  it to far to ride my bike and I’m not as young as I use to be.
