In 2004 we did a road trip from Colorado to California. We stopped overnight in Elko Nevada and then continued to San Francisco. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the US. We stayed there for a few days and then drove to Santa Monica, where this photograph was taken. I’ve always had mixed feelings about Southern California. Its beautiful of course, but I alway feel like there is something evil bubbling away under the surface, trying to escape! Maybe I’ve watched too many movies.
