Sunday Stills (Statues) & Mellow Yellow / Port of Los Angeles, San Pedro, California

Click on photo to enlarge!
This statue stands in the Ports-a-Call Village at the Port of Los Angeles, San Pedro, California.
Somehow I could feel the wind and sea water blowing in my face as I gazed at it.

This reminds me so much of the fisherman's monument in Gloucester, Massachusetts. :)

Nice shot of a great statue. I have the sea in my blood, ironic considering I live a long way from it.

Your B/W photo of the fountain below is spectacular.

I like the addition of the palm trees for added texture.

It is as though he is rounding Cape Horn and taking us with him. Very evocative statue. So much better than the simple stand up straight ones.

I have been here so many times in the past sixteen years, having cruised with Royal Caribbean 78 times. Of course, many of my cruises have been from ports in far distant lands but, when my beloved Monarch was here, the first ship I ever did with Royal Caribbean in 1995 out of San Juan, I used to sail on her frequently. I'd often fly down from San Francisco the day before and eat at Ports of Call.

I love the way you can see the crinkles in his clothes and he's so expressive. Wonderful statue.

Oh No, I can smell a storm brewing.

I wonder how many children and adults go up and help him steer the wheel?

I like the angle which you photographed the statue and also the colors of this photo, which look very natural.
