2014 Photography Challenge- A Moment in Time (3:00 p.m.)

For this photo, I hopped on my bike and traveled the very busy bike path from Santa Monica to Venice to capture my 3:00 p.m. photo. What a difference from when I was there at 3:00 a.m.. I remember at 3:00 a.m. questioning whether it was a safe decision to wander alone in Venice. Apparently I couldn't have been too concerned since I returned to a different, equally unsafe and questionable area of Venice at 4:00 a.m.

At any rate, it really was like a completely different scene and I knew this would be a place where the contrast between a.m. and p.m. would really come alive. There were several photos to choose from that I snapped immediately at 3:00 p.m., but I went with this one because it was the least chaotic of the three to choose from. (Although scroll to the bottom to see the two I didn't choose).

Here are the two photos side by side (remember to click on the photo to see it bigger):

5 things I noticed between the two photos:
  • Similar to 2:00 a.m., at 3:00 a.m., if you weren't from around here, you may not know there's an ocean out there!
  • The sign from 3:00 a.m. is nowhere to be found several months and 12 hours later at 3:00 p.m.
  • The Venice Pier at 3:00 a.m. is actually closed off, but at 3:00 p.m., you can walk all the way to the end (1,310 ft. in length)
  • The fog is so dense you can't even tell that there is a lifeguard tower or lights lining the length of the Pier
  • Like my own personal game of Photo Hunt, the trash cans have been placed closer to the entrance of the Pier at 3:00 p.m.

My 3:00 p.m. outtakes which paint a perfect picture of the complete chaos of a sunny summer afternoon in Venice. Tourists. Surfers. Tourists. Segway Tours. Strollers. Bikers. Tourists:
