in the mornings when i get up early and go surf i pass an area on pch in seal beach that i always stare at. i really want to photograph it but i think its a military base of some sort. there’s no place to park and there are signs all over the fences keeping people out. i don’t want to go in, i want to stand in the street and shoot (photograph) … it just looks so cool, so ominous … the fog tends to lay low among the weird bridge, oil derricks and palm trees. i’ve seen this image in my head for a couple years now, its almost been so long that if i ever stop and try to shot it, i’m nervous that i will not find the shot i’ve seen in my head for so long. i want to crop it low and long. not sure you’d calling a panorama, but similar in feeling.
below is a similar looking area in long beach, also on pch. i stopped here on my way to work this morning to see if i could catch an image similar to what i want from the seal beach location. i’m really happy with this shot and i will return to this location but this is WAY different than what i’ve described above and i was looking for.
