(with apologies to Led Zepplin)
After a quick detour for coffee and pastry at the Lafayette Bakery at the Barnyard, I headed off to the sea.
This is another one of those, I know one of my clients is looking for something specific. In this case I saw Carmel on a list and figured it’s time to head back and shoot some stock.
My first stop was Carmel Meadows- a walking path along the sea. My parking spot deadended looking down a steepish stairway to the water below.
Though beautiful, it was a bit barron for what I was looking for. As I walked around, I only encountered one woman walking a dog.
From there I went into the quaint little town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. There had been some nibbles on a few photos I’d taken previously of the Cypress Inn, so I thought I’d add a few more to the library.
I did a loop around the touristy main drag. One of the more photogenic places is the La Bicyclette- with a prop oldschool bike and French flags.
There’s that hobbit-esque candy shop that somehow I can never resist photographing as well.
From previous trips I have the other main touristy spot, the Mission pretty well covered, so no stops this time (but I’ll post an old pic here none-the-less.)
(As far as I know, nobody reads this, so let me end this blog. So I’m gonna close with a fun closer, albeit in another language…)
