My family and I went to Southern California this summer for our vacation. We stayed in the Santa Monica area, just a few blocks from the beach. The weather was surprisingly cool and pleasant, around 75 degrees every day. We hit the beach, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and The Getty Center. The Getty Center in Los Angeles presents the Getty's collection of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present against a backdrop of dramatic architecture, tranquil gardens, and breathtaking views. My wife and two older daughters got to fly on a trapeze on the Santa Monica Pier, something my wife always wanted to do. Will also hit Rodeo Drive and did a little (very little) shopping.
I tried not to go overboard with the photography. I took by Nikon D90 with a 50MM F1.4 lens and my little Panasonic S90 point and shoot camera.
