Watt's Pic of the Week

My friend Mike Watt is many things. Most of all, he is a man who loves San Pedro. As he walks (hoofs), bikes (pedals) and kayaks (paddles) around this beautiful but under-appreciated part of our city, he takes the occasional photograph.

It could be anything that catches his eye - a pelican, a sunrise, or a shoe he finds lying on the ground. Watt has an unerring eye for zeroing in on that one interesting thing you would want to point out to a friend. I would almost call it the, "Hey, check it out!" school of photography.

I find his photography beautiful, stirring, amusing, and always full of heart. He may not realize it, but he is creating a historical archive of the city he loves. He has agreed to let me share them with all of our friends here at LAist.
