The Brave, the Bold, the Beautiful and the Weird at Venice Beach

Venice Beach is everything. There’s the bold, the strong, the beautiful, the weird, the hip and the artist. It is a place that shows all we think of America—without the republicans!

The Bold. They’re young but already bold to scale up and down the skateboarding pit. One false move could lead them to injury.

The Strong. Venice Beach is a host to the Muscle Men and Women competition. Better go in early afternoon and check it out at the little arena during the competition.

The Beautiful. The eye candies are everywhere in Venice Beach. But don’t waste your time on the boardwalk. The weird, mostly, stay there. Go to the beach instead and ogle at the tanned and toned surfers chasing waves. You can see some of these hotties playing volleyball, too. The public exercise parks are full of men flexing muscles you would want to stay there forever.

An eye candy doing his routine. Sigh. 😉

The weird. This Freak show is weird.

The Weird. This lazy dog just lie there and waited for unsuspecting tourists to drop a dollar. If the owner caught you taking picture, even from afar, he would shout and remind you to pay a dollar for a picture.

The Buskers. There are a lot of buskers around. Few in groups or duo and some do it alone.

He does breakdancing and moonwalk. I’m not sure if he’s the dead MJ?

The Hip. The Green Doctors can advise you for all your green needs, I guess?

The Artists. Artists and artisans line along the boardwalk. They’re in shades or sun all day. I’m not really sure if there are a lot of people buying their stuff that they would require $1 fee if you take a photo of what they’re selling. It could be for copyright reasons or just plain tactic to earn.

The Murals. They’re everywhere. They’re huge, small, bold, vibrant and beautiful.

The Palm Trees. As you can see the photo below, they’re not spared from paint sprays.

The Boardwalk. Isn’t just for walking, obviously.
