little pink houses for you and me

The rendezvous location for the Salton Sea trip was in Oceanside. I was there back in June 2007 scouting to shoot Team Type 1 for Abbott Diabetes Care in their quest to win the Race Across America bike race. It was then that I discovered a set of teeny, tiny pink rental cottages by the beach. They didn’t fit into the plan to make rider cards, but I knew that I wanted to go back and shoot the cottages sometime.

I picked up Martin at the Amtrak station and we headed down to the beach in the early morning light.

Little Pink Cottages

These cottages remind me of the great work that Joel Meyerwitz did in his Cape Light book.

Waiting for the beach towels

As we shot the beach community began to wake up give us the opportunity to include dog walkers, joggers or some odd new exercise contraption into the frame.

Does anyone know what these contraptions are called?
