Surfer on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier

I took this photo yesterday (1-24-11) at the south facing beach of the Huntington Beach Pier.

This surfer spent a few seconds in the barrel and I was able to capture the series with my Nikon D7000, along with my Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom Nikkor lens. He later paddled by and gave me his email address to send the pictures, but it seems I didn’t get the email correct. 🙁

So if you’re him contact me via this website and I’ll be happy to send them to you.

A unique bicycle at the Huntington Beach pier

A very unique bicycle at Huntington Beach pier.

As I was strolling along enjoying the views, from a distance it seemed this was a motorcycle. Upon closer inspection, as you can see, its a bike! I didn’t have a chance to speak to the person riding it, in fact there were two of these bikes. They look a little heavy, but definitely an eye catcher. Only in SoCal!

Need a new hangout in Huntington Beach

bird mistaken for bait

This bird should really reconsider a new hangout.

Seeing an injured bird is not funny, but when I noticed this one legged creature standing on the fisherman’s cutting board at the pier I had to take a quick snapshot. He was fine, looked like an old injury.

A step forward towards happiness

A step forward in the sand

Taking a step forward isn’t always easy. Obstacles, either physical, emotional or psychological can stop one from enjoying life to the fullest. Focus on the positive and that step forward will lead you to happiness.

A good book that has helped many people take that first step is Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive. I normally don’t read these type of books, but I’ve read this one. The collective stories are inspiring and motivational.

Have a great day!
