I found an unexpected diversity of culture and landscape whilst traveling the West Coast of Southern California. From the low-lying skyline of San Diego to the Spanish Mission-style architecture of Santa Barbara, from the glamour of Hollywood to the grittiness of Downtown L.A.

Above are some SoCal travel photography highlights.
