Huntington Beach Pier Poster Effect Artwork


Huntington Beach --In this interpretation of Huntington Beach Pier, a landmark of the City of Huntington Beach, California, you'll see almost an accurate shade of the pier's signature roof that houses Ruby's Diner. However, there's little else that accurately portrays the true color of an HB vacation day.

We call them vacation days because any time you visit downtown Huntington Beach and its pier, even if you work there you somehow get energized by the ocean itself. Some cities such as Pebble Beach to the north in Monterey County show waves in constantly, crashing turbulence against rocks and shore. While Huntington Beachh's sand was created by such a process, the beach offers opportunity to wander into the water and even swim.

But be forewarned, lives are lost each year when people wander out a bit too far and are pulled by the strong, unexpected currents known as rips.

Back to the picture above. Shows in teal, blue, red, chartreuse and lavender, the images is one variation of a set of graphically manipulated photos, all coming from one original you can view. This sort of digital photography is popular and was the bulk of a body of works called "A-Pierances" that were tied to an anniversary of the Huntington Beach Pier, the brainchild of Natalie Kotsch. She is a Huntington Beach Realtor and founder of the International Surfing Museum

The event was well-received and enthusiasm was shared with other local photographer/artists such as former Huntington Beach Mayor Connie Boardman, who is a talented photographer in her own right. The series of photos appearing here were produced using various filters. The image above employed several.

Where to stay in HB, CA? Do you know, I have expensive taste. I have visited every single hotel in Huntington Beach, I've looked at the rooms, sat on the beds, and there's only two I've selected for overnight stays. Problem is, not everyone has the money to spend on rooms at the Hyatt or Hilton beach resorts. By popularity, you probably should consider the  Best Western Huntington Beach at the beach or value-oriented Howard Johnson Express.
