Newport Beach, California
(2002)

1. Introduction

2002.03
I acquired the following images of various locations around Newport Beach. 

I bicycled from my apartment in Irvine to Upper Newport Bay, and then to the Balboa Peninsula "Fun Zone", and the beach portion of Newport Beach (on Balboa Peninsula). 

I sorted the images by location along the bike trip, so you can visualize the route.
