Location: town of Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, California, USA. My enjoyable walk to the Avalon Casino (which was named for the Italian meaning of “casino” – a gathering place) was nearly over. Late afternoon light was gorgeous, and I had my wide-angle zoom with me. Of several captures, this was the one I liked best for the way the fence and the palm trees lead the eye to the Art Deco Casino structure. This is not cropped, composed in the camera, and was given only minimal post-processing. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 9-18mm zoom at 18mm [36mm in 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/1600 sec., ISO 200, afternoon sun, handheld)
