A few days ago I returned home from nearly a month in California. My time was crammed full of family time and a few visits to my favorite beaches – Pismo Beach among them.
Street Photography at the Beach
The morning I spent at Pismo Beach was breezy and beautiful! It wasn’t the right time of day to shoot landscapes so I focused on the people instead – mostly surfers.
I set my shutter speed at 1/200 or faster in order to freeze the motion of them running into the waves. With my mom’s Canon 70-200 f/4L lens I was able to get great shots of people without being in their faces and looking too conspicuous. I love that lens!
Where to eat in Pismo Beach
After a long walk on the beach I needed breakfast – Old West Cinnamon Rolls was the obvious choice. Perhaps I’m biased because I grew up on the central coast, but they make the BEST cinnamon rolls. I have to visit at least once every time I’m in town. If you’ve never tried their cinnamon rolls you’re missing out!
