Surfer Boy 2

Posted by
Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 13 April 2012 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This sums it all up for me. That Southern California sunset. That certain oneness with the ocean. Almost makes me want to don a wetsuit, but then naaah...
Still finishing a deadline and hard to get to all the blogs.

For all we really know, he could be wishing he was someplace else . . "if I'd not slipped away to the beach that day, I could still have had a future at the car-wash". Choices.
