I love this picture - it's one of my favorite photographs of Los Angelels. I have a framed copy hanging above my desk.
With the Santa Monica Mountains in the distance, I'm not sure where else in the world you could get a similar vista.
The exact same spot, minus the zoom lense.
I took these photographs on Super Bowl Sunday in 2007. In that we never had network or cable T.V. while living in Los Angeles, Super Bowl Sunday was a great day to take our kids to the beach. Too cold to swim, but they enjoyed splashing around in the water.
What was surprising was how many people were out and about, not watching "the big game."
Maybe not as big of a deal in L.A.
