Santa Monica is the west coast's ideal vision of classic Americana. Beaches, boardwalks, and of course the iconic Ferris wheel. But there's something else there I think people have been overlooking and that's Palisades Park. This magnificently manicured park stretches on and on above the famous Santa Monic boardwalk and it's full of intriguing, alien-looking plants. These are some of my favorite captures from my idyllic stroll through that breathtaking park.
