Here’s a few more images, from our day at the Santa Monica Pier…  This pelican was hanging out, by the fisherman and he had no desire to go anywhere.  Quite a large crowd developed and still…  no movement.  My sister affectionately named him Earl.

Large pelicans, like this, fly up and down the Southern California coast.  I see them flying in formations, in the Santa Barbara area, frequently.  What a stunning animal.  I was blown away by the vibrant yellow, in his feathers.  The sharp hook on the end of his beak, was fascinating to inspect.

Merry Christmas and thanks for hanging out, Earl.

“My name is JB Brookman. I’m a rock star concert photographer who grew up shooting the biggest stars in the world. The stages and venues of Hollywood and LA used to be my home, but now I have made a home in the suburbs of Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee. Shooting Taylor Swift, U2, Elton John and Ed Sheeran is great, but my true passion is creating highly stylized, authentic and modern portraits of High School Seniors, making them feel like they are at the center of the stage.”
