Dog Beach… Del Mar, California

Published by MJR on December 2nd, 2009 in Uncategorized | 4 Comments »

I didn’t really know that these places existed. The night before these images were made I decided to drive to San Diego to meet two friends who were there for one night only. I took the 5 freeway. Its basically a straight shot through Los Angeles and Orange counties and into San Diego. Its a cement walled race track and at one point I think the freeway opens to 7 lanes each way. The drive down was full of traffic and fairly boring visually unless you’re into brake light design.

The next morning I had nowhere to be so I decided to take the Pacific Coast highway home, a much nicer and longer drive that winds you around small coastal towns with taco places and views of the water. I remember I was listening to Blockhead’s new album sort of coasting my way back north. I was driving across a small bridge when I saw about 3 dozen people and their dogs running around on the beach. Unsanitary! is what I thought at first but once I got out there I just wished I had a dog.

These Images are from Del Mar Dog Beach in California made around 11:30 am on Saturday Nov 14, 2009. Leica M6 Velvia 50.

    Sometimes, I wish i was a dog, the freedom they have, especially the ones that live near this beach… Amazing… I love how these double exposure add a “fictional” layer to the image. Really nice man..
