While waiting for a sunrise by the beach, I went around Santa Monica Pier checking out what the pier looked like with no signs of life around. I had never before not seen a big crowed of people hanging around Pacific Park. It was actually a pretty cool sight. And luckily for me it wasn’t completely lifeless. I say lucky because when I first arrived, the lights to the ferris wheel were off, but there was a lone maintenance guy who noticed me setting up my tripod and he was kind enough to turn the lights to the ferris wheel on.
