Santa Monica Boardwalk

So on Christmas Day, most of my family was relaxing and tending their hangovers after a crazy Christmas Eve. I didn’t drink much since I had an hour and a half drive back to where I was staying. So, anyways, since everyone wasn’t doing anything, and because most of the stores and venues were closed for Christmas Day, I decided to visit the Santa Monica boardwalk. There wasn’t a lot of people there and all the public parking lots had at least 400 spots available – it was a perfect day to visit!

All the shops and venues were open at the board walk as well as some shops across the street from the boardwalk, including the street performers and beggars! 🙂

I decided to try the HDR mode on my Canon EOS 80D to try to get all the contrasting colors of the area.
