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.

That's My World Tuesday, The Weekend in Black and White & Scenic Sunday / Fountains at the Cruise Ship Terminal, San Pedro, California USA

       Click on photo to enlarge!
This is an elaborate fountain of dancing waters at the Cruise Ship Terminal in San Pedro, California.
The pools are divided into sections each of which send water towards the dark sky.
People can walk between the sections if they want to get soaked.
It was a very hot night in San Pedro on this day and many children were running in all directions getting soaked by the spray and overflow of the pools.
It was very entertaining!

Weekend Reflections / Colorful Fountain in the Long Beach Marina, Long Beach, California USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
A colorful fountain graces Long Beach Marina, Long Beach, California USA.
I like to park my car in one of the lots along Shoreline Drive and then walk until I cannot walk anymore...
all the while gazing at sights like this...

SkyWatch Friday & In a Yellow House Photo Challenge / Trees

These beautifully illuminated palms are along the entrance to the Cruise Ship Terminal in San Pedro, California USA.
The dancing waters entertain many passers-by every 15 minutes after dark.
The same company that created the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada also created these about 2 1/2 years ago.


They are a beautiful sight!

ABC Wednesday / "F" for Flowers in the Sand

Click on photo to enlarge!
I really love the colorful lifeguard stands at Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro, California USA.
Each one is painted differently and so fun to see.
I'll post some of the others soon, but, this one has flowers and that is just what I need for ABC Wednesday this week.

The light from the Cabrillo Beach Pier in San Pedro, California reflects on the water well after sunset.

That's My World Tuesday / AK Smiley Library, Redlands, CA USA

 Click on photo to enlarge!
This is an outdoor corridor at the AK Smiley Library in Redlands, California USA.
It was early evening when I was really enjoying a walk around the grounds with my camera.
I wanted to get into a group for the Worldwide Photo Walk last month, but, could not because of conflicts with my calendar.
I looked up the maps of some of the walks in my, somewhat, local area and this is one of the stops made on the Redlands, California walk.
I didn't have the pleasure of sharing time with other photographers but the map led me to a place I wouldn't have thought about, otherwise.
I am planning to do the same in other areas around Los Angeles as time allows.

Sunday Stills, Blue Monday, Midweek Blues, Ruby Tuesday / Sea Dragon

 Click on photo to enlarge!
I like this whimsical Sea Dragon at Seaport Village in San Diego, CA.
He's perched along the waterfront and displays some real attitude!
I had fun photographing him from different perspectives and magically turning him to black and white (in my previous post).

Sunday Stills
The theme is metal.
