Lifeguard Hut on Newport Beach, LA

Lifesaver hut on the beach at sunset, Pacific Coast Highway in LA, California. Art photo by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: No Lifeguard on Duty.

This was taken as the sun began to set spectacularly during a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway in LA. It looked so amazing that stopping wherever possible and digging out the camera became a sudden priority. This place at Newport Beach was the nearest (and oddly empty).

Ironic it doesn’t look like a sunset photo, but that’s deliberate. Because as amazing as sunsets are in person, traditional sunset photos are uninspiring to me. In fact, I think I’ve only ever done one, and that was commissioned for a wedding invitation.
