Lens-Artists Challenge # 154: One Photo, Two Ways

Love the quote on the Travels and Trifles blog:

“A photographer’s eye is perpetually evaluating.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

My One Shot, Two Ways is of Avila Beach, on the Central Coast.

I liked the wide angle shot of the beach, but the rescue station had such an interesting mural. I just had to zoom in. It seems to portray a rescue craft, heading away from a ship? I tried to find out the name of the artist, but so far I haven’t been able to find any information. I’ll keep looking.

It was my first post-pandemic beach trip. And it was a gorgeous day.

Stay cool, dear blog readers. Stay cool.

    How great you get to enjoy a beautiful day at the beach after a year of confinement. Loved the closeup

      Thank you! That’s such interesting art for a Lifeguard station, I couldn’t go without zooming in. Avila Beach is 4 hrs south of me. Was worth it!

    Yes, the close up is a winner for me, too. Now you have me wondering about the mural on the lifeguard station!! I’m glad you had this wonderful respite at the beach.

      It’s a rescue of some sort, right? It’s driving me crazy that I can’t find any info on the artist. Avila Beach is where Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (where my son went to school) maintains a Center for Coastal Marine Science. Thanks for dropping by!
