The rides at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier boardwalk is something I’ve tried to shoot each time I go out there. I’ve never been quite satisfied with how I’ve shot it but this one came a little closer to what I was trying to achieve. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to recompose and shoot it again on this night because I was just a few seconds from the last rides from ending and the lights being shut off for the night. But regardless of how this shot turned out, I am always happy to be able to get the beautiful neon lights from these rides into the scene. It’s a great little amusement park considering the space that’s available and it’s a spot I don’t think I’ll tire of visiting anytime soon.
