Last week in the pages the local photography covered the surfers in Malibu – see Malibu Calling: The Call to the Wall.  Those fifteen photos did not cover the Malibu that wasn't surfing.  Here are some of those shots.  These are from a collection of forty-two shots now available in a separate photo album - but here you get a bit better resolution.

 

If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me.  

There is a copyright notice at the bottom of this page, of course.

These were shot with a Nikon D70 – lens AF-5 Nikor 18-70mm 1:35-4.5G ED or AF Nikor 70-300mm telephoto.

They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0

 

If you're not surfing in Malibu, you can be fishing at the pier:

Or you can hang around the lagoon where Malibu Creek meets the Pacific.  (That the Hughes Research Center on the hill – where they fired up the first working laser long ago, but now where they do government things so secret they cannot be discussed.  The employees' cafeteria has a killer view.  That's about all I saw of it way back when – my clearance wasn't high enough to see much more than that.)

These aren't surfboards.  Yes, they're kayaks.

Bob Patterson and I went looking for celebrities at Malibu Creek Plaza, but all we found was this joker:

James Dean died in one of these, and in Malibu they sell replicas, at the nearby Automotive Legends store.  Morbid?  Perhaps.  (Bob tells me this is a "type C" bathtub Porsche, and Dean died in a 550A Spyder.  They did not have a 550 or 550A there the day we were there.  They had had one, but it shipped out on the Monday of that week.  Oh well.)
