Using My iPhone to Document An Oceanside Local Landmark – Lifeguard Tower 9

This summer I have been fairly diligent about swimming at the beach. I go nearly every day, regardless of the weather, the tides, the surf or the water temperature. I also go to the same place every day; Oceanside’s Tower 9, at the end of Oceanside Blvd at Pacific St in Oceanside, CA.

Oceanside beach’s Tower 9 at Oceanside Blvd and Pacific St is placed there permanently.

I have been taking a photo or 2 (or 3) every time I go down there, just to document the event. Sometimes the sky is blue and the air warm, sometimes it’s not.

I don’t always photograph it from the street, sometimes I shoot it from the sand, or the rocks.

The neighbors have their own wishes and prayers for the surfers who come down here to ride the waves.
