Magical Santa Monica

Magical Santa Monica

An ode to the joys of being a  flâneur in Santa Monica, and the whimsical treasures revealed while engaging in Flânerie .

WEB1Kettle’s on…

WEB2the open roof of this patio on 34th and Pearl streets…

WEB3Quite a sight seen from the street.

WEB4A closer view  reveals trees getting into the act. What a collection!

WEB6Details of a beautiful painted door on the west side of one of the shady North South Streets south of Wilshire…14th?

WEB5The textures created by weathering make it all the more entrancing.

WEB8Nearby….on 14th or 15th Street just south of Montana Avenue…a magical realm of flamingos and butterflies.

WEB9Right next door paper lanterns hang like daytime moons, amongst the brilliant purple blooms of the seasonally ubiquitous Jacaranda tree.

webx4Crushed cans form a mosaic surface on the walls of an apartment building (or condos?) on a north south street, south of Wilshire.

webx3Someone, or some…spent a lot of time on this. Let’s hear it for recycling…an aesthetic coup for environmentally conscious Santa Monica.

webx7LITE details.  A touchingly tactile transformation.

WEB7Well wishes from the Yarn Bombers…brightening up a chain link fence protecting what looks to be an empty lot.

We hope YOU are well, too.  Come and enjoy the whimsical beauties of art, nature and creativity abounding in Santa Monica.  If you didn’t  feel well before you visit, you are certain to feel better afterwards.
