Venice Beach had been on my list of places to see for some time. As with most of my trips, I have no reservations. I got lucky and found a really nice place along the beach. Parking there is a whole different story. I spent a week there. I wondered around the sidewalks. I went in and out of stores. I watched the people. Venice did not disappoint. I went there to take pictures of personalities. What I discovered is that everything in Venice has its own personality, whether it be a person, pet or building.
