The Mountain Man

July 2014 – Venice Beach, California

Venice Beach was, without a doubt, my favourite place to be in California. The people there were lively, fun, entertaining and so very unique and in some instances… odd, but in a very good way.

I will post a few more pictures of the interesting people of Venice Beach, but The Mountain Man was my favourite. It was hot out, especially for us Canadians, so seeing this man fully clothed in mountain gear, complete with the racoon hat was a site to behold. He didn’t flinch when taking this photo, he didn’t pose, he didn’t throw out a fake smile and wave… he was just being him and when do what I do, that is exactly what you want. Just be real and be yourself, or in this case, be “The Mountain Man”!
