Venice Beach Skatepark during golden hour.
I was visiting California for the first time and staying at my friend's apartment in Via Marina. I walked down to the Venice boardwalk 3 times during my week-long trip and felt so much calmness amongst the chaos. I would watch and document the skaters for hours until the sunset. I found such a strong sense of community within the skaters there and I fell in love.
