What Los Angeles can feel like in August.

"Sunken City," San Pedro, California.


Picket Fence

We spent a pleasant afternoon in Venice Beach while we were in California.

Visually Venice is perfect for me: while some people prefer its curves and soft shapes,
I'm happiest photographing straight lines and hard contrasts.


Fishing at the Water's Edge

Hanging out at the La Brea tar pits.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
