Avalon City of the Catalina Island is probably one of the most unique places in all of Southern California. It's like a little paradise just outside of L.A. When driving around, the mountains have all the look and feel of California but the ocean is very clear and beautiful.
Pier shots like this one are always interesting. There is so much texture involved with the old wood and all the oxidized metal that holds it in place. It's not the prettiest looking thing, but certainly some nice colors and geometry.
