I've been living in Southern California for 22 years so far, and thought I've been to every beach there is. That is, until I had a photo session last week at Manhattan Beach. Manhattan Beach? What's the attraction there? Huntington Beach has surfers. Venice has Muscle Beach and street performers. What does Manhattan Beach have? Hills, I discovered. Lots of them. It's like San Francisco without the layer of freezing cold fog! And although I parked rather far from the pier, I had a great session with the beautiful Wilson family. They fit right in with the amazing scenery and the relaxed atmosphere the beach had to offer.
