Seaside, CA - Storefronts
Seaside, California (population 34,182), is a small coastal community that neighbors the popular tourist city of Monterey. In comparison to neighboring cities including, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach and Carmel, it's much more working class and culturally diverse.
When I started this project, I was focused on shooting storefronts and arranging them into strange looking streets but realized I wanted to include some portraits also. I chose to shoot at dusk because it's my favorite type of light. The combination of glowing store windows, streetlights and colder sky, help convey my lonely view of the city.
