The Villa Riviera, built in 1929 and renovated in 2009, is a Long Beach, California landmark that is also on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally a hotel, it is now a condominium building and overlooks Alamitos Beach. On this particular afternoon, fog began rolling in from the ocean (to the right in this image), a somewhat unusual event at that time of day. You can see fog in the sky and also the hazy brightness it causes around the roof and some of the upper right side of the building.
