Santa Monica Pier
This photo was taken on my digital camera at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. During my undergraduate years, my friends and I would often visit the pier to play games at the arcade, swim, and ride the Ferris wheel. It was always one of the best ways to wind down, take a break from school, and explore the city. I took this photo of this rollercoaster and its riders during one of my last visits to the pier before moving to San Francisco. During my editing process using Lightroom, I tried to emphasize the movement of the rollercoaster and the nostalgia of going to the pier using sunset colors and framing.
