The OC – Yet Again!

Yesterday, I saw a person driving into a gated Orange County community in a brand new Audi S5.

(In case you aren’t familiar with them, they are bitchin’ looking cars – with a starting price over $60,000.)

iPhone photo of Audi S5.

The license plate says “IFAKDIT” – I faked it.

She and a zillion other OC trophy wives, right?

(BTW, I’m making a big assumption purely for creative writing purposes – I have no idea who was really driving the car.)

This is what life is like in Orange County – vanity plates and fancy cars.

But …?

Orange County is also this –

San Clemente, mid-day, in the middle of last week.

There is the shallow – fancy cars, vanity plates, and plastic people ….

And there is the beauty.

Some people, have trouble distinguishing between the two.

The child within ….

I love to photograph the beauty –

Also, I gravitate towards people who are beautiful on the inside.

Black and white (daytime) long exposure of Pirate’s Cove.

There is so much beauty here.

    LOL… ain’t it the truth.

    Love your photos and your wit, as always.

    And you got me to thinking, regarding the twitter discussion. I guess blogging could be viewed as a form of narcissm also, the thought never occured to me. And because I don’t tweet, I didn’t know twitter was also an online “community”… as I feel blogging is. So.. good points, 24. 🙂

    Hah – don’t worry, that was my first thought when I saw that license plate, too! Unfortunately, in Ohio we have vanity plates on completely unremarkable Nissan Altimas cars.

    No, I don’t know anyone who has “WEIRDOS” on their plate…why do you ask?
