This is one of my favorite views. The Santa Monica Pier, with the new ferris wheel alight, viewed at dusk from a bay window at the Casa del Mar Hotel bar. Preferably, with a nice drink on the table.
Whenever I see the pier and the ferris wheel, it always makes me hear this song in my head:
"Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights, our carnival life forever
Oh, love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
Oh, I mean it Sandy girl,
- Bruce Springsteen
"Fourth of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)"
For Thematic Photographic-ers, I kept the photo big enough to enlarge if you click. It's nice to see the detail.
