Dudley had turned frail, so it was Ollie's turn to accompany me on my walk from the house to the studio during the summer of 2013. I shot what tourists came to see in 2004 and thought I would shoot the tourists themselves (off the hip) 9 years later. Sometimes I would just take a break outside the studio and shoot the people walking by or getting ice cream next door to my studio...Some people are enjoying themselves more than others. Note that the phone hadn't completely taken over most people's lives yet, so few phones appear in the photos. Documentary photographs of Venice Beach
