Two Sides of California

Jenna Nakasu, North High School - 11th grade

My picture represents the state of California because it shows the two sides of California has to offer. In the foreground, you can see the beach and ocean, which southern California is known for. Though the weather seems a bit overcast, which the beach is most of the time, people still come out and enjoy the surf and other activities held on the beaches such as volleyball or lifeguard duties. The beaches are always crowded and much life can be seen throughout the entire day.

In the background, you can see the factories spewing out smoke and other burned off materials. This shows how close industries are to the beaches in California; they show the start of where businesses are located and where itís time to work and make a living rather than relaxing on the beach.
