In a society full of technology and fast paced mentalities though, we do not stop to fully enjoy and appreciate the beauty out there. I started this project as a way to explore and study the beautiful shapes and forms of nature. Sure a leaf is a leaf, but have you ever stopped to realize how many different shapes and sizes leaves come in? A lot! And they are beautiful!
If you know me, you know I LOVE animals (except spiders, they do not count, they never count). These birds often annoy people and get overlooked. I happen to love them and love watching them. There is one in particular that has only 1 foot. He is very strong willed and does not let his disability affect him. I ALWAYS look for him when I am at the wharf! They all have their own personalities, which is noticeable when you observe them like I do. They are very photogenic and super fun!
My favorite part of California, besides of course the beautiful scenery, is the sea lion population. I love animals. When I first got to see the seal lions they were rafting, all sleeping in the water floating next to each other, often nestled together, and I fell in love. I did not want to leave the wharf.
