Places: Huntington Beach, California

Growing up in Southern California, the beach was always a good idea. Afternoons were spent playing volleyball, setting up for a bonfire, or simply laying around on beach towels. While Huntington Beach is one of the more crowded beaches, it always had it's charm. It's full of happy families, lovers on dates, and young people having a good time. You seriously can't leave this place without a big smile on your face.

Since moving to Northern California, the one thing I miss most in SoCal are warm afternoons spent on the beach. 

Spent the afternoon with one of my older brothers (photographed above) and snapped a photo of a group of girls — I think they reminded me of simpler times when me and my girlfriends would just hang out all afternoon talking about boys, clothes, and whatever else occupied our teenage minds.
