Life's a Beach

Despite not having experienced a grueling Chicago winter yet I've already decided that I hate the weather here. In the summer it's hot and HUMID. Having grown up in the south I'm used to humidity but there we also rarely dealt with it-- as all stores, cars, restaurants, homes and offices are blissfully air conditioned (unlike Chicago!).

Four years in LA's dry & mainly rainfree weather also spoiled me. The overwhelming humidity here alternates with pelting rain and thunder storms that crop up despite the 'sunny with light cloud coverage' forecast.

The past four days have been gloomy, gray and wet. Since outdoor photo expeditions are out of the question right now I've posted some detail shots from the 12th Street Beach-- where I long to go on my days off rather than sitting inside yet another coffee shop or bookstore.

Those rocks are gorgeous!

I pick up my film today, hopefully there are a couple good ones.

This has been the worst summer in a long long time, though. Isn't this week just depressing?
