San Clemente: It was a grayish day in San Clemente as my brother, niece and I strolled along the pier. As we walked back toward land I snapped this picture. It reminded me of a painting because of all the elements. There is the train that runs along the shoreline, the people in various states of dress along the beach and in the water, oh-so-California palm trees and the gently rising hill behind it all. I put a little grainy filter on the photo just for fun.
