We all have our favorite places to go - mine just center around construction and photography. I've worked on many heavy civil construction projects and am still fascinated to watch such jobs progress.
If I'm working on landscapes or seascapes, a couple of favorite places are definitely Laguna Beach and La Jolla.
Laguna has been the subject of many of my most popular non-construction images including the Abstract of Nature series.
Funny thing, when you start to really know your subject, a new perspective of your familiarity shows up in one's photographs.
