You deserve flowers on your doorstep and coffee in the morning ..you deserve notes left on your dashboard and ice cream sundaes at 3am... You deserve honesty every day and to be kissed every hour ...you deserve to be reminded of how beautiful you are....

katwesterman As a fine artist I'm very passionate about supporting art education programs especially in the inner cities as it is often the programs that are cut due to budget constraints... To this end I am pleased to announce that @angelenoartistry has featured me as one of five Los Angeles artists to for the month of March and through them I am selling this photo as a limited edition print of which 50 percent of the proceeds go towards funding elementary and middle school art programs in inner city Los Angeles. Just one print purchased will fund art programs for an inner city student for an entire week. The link is in my bio. This print was part of my series titled Longitude and Latitude and you can read about it in the profile on Angeleno artistry. Thank you always for your support . 1mon

katwesterman Hi everyone, @katwesterman bringing you a snap from Santa Monica beach for our @guardiantravelsnaps Southern California beach mini tour.... This person took the hard route as there are two paths right behind me to walk and ride your bike on... So much to do here... Within the next hour I
1. Took a ride on the roller coaster on the pier
2. Looked for the singing chairs that are a piece of art closer to pico boulevard
3. Found the Route 66 end of trail sign on the pier... Looked at the other side of the sign and discovered it said end of trail on that side too... why it didn't say beginning of the trail ?
4. Played chess
5. Learned an overhead serve on the volleyball court
6. Took a photo in the photo booth
7. Tried to fly a drone for an aerial photo but it decided to pair up with another person and then I spent the next several minutes chasing it down... 8. Planned my next road trip....

katwesterman Hey everyone @katwesterman here with another post for the @guardiantravelsnaps tour of Southern California beaches... This photo is of the Malibu surf lagoon.... Otherwise known as Surfrider Beach.... Known for its perfect break.... I'm not entirely sure but I think the kayaker that I saw stuck on the rocks didn't see the sign that said surfboards only.... #featuremeinstagood @instagood 1mon

katwesterman Good Morning from Malibu... Hi everyone it's @katwesterman here continuing my tour of Southern California beaches for @guardiantravelsnaps ..... In Southern California the sunrises and sunsets take your breathe away and you will often find people stopping and staring... You will often find me stopping and staring at the people stopping and staring.... This beach is El Matador State Beach in Malibu... Climbing over the rocky terrain is worth it as this place is filled with hidden coves, clear water, and loads of sand to picnic on. Or dig a giant hole if that's what you prefer... This beach is considered one of the most romantic.... P.S. Don't forget to tag your travel photos with #guardiantravelsnaps for a chance to be featured. And check out some of the wonderful photos on their feed.
P.P.S. A huge thank you to @huntgram for featuring this photo in the USA section!! A huge honor.

katwesterman Hey everyone @katwesterman here with another beach scene from Venice Beach, California. On weekend nights there is the Venice Beach Drum Circle where many people bring their drums, shakers, instruments and their dancing feet .. From about noon until well after dark.... Everyone starts dancing, chanting and just having fun.... All you have to do to find it is listen for the beat... Otherwise it's where brooks avenue meets up with Ocean Avenue... Did discover it's tricky to photograph while dancing but the beat was irresistible ... I couldn't help myself... 1mon

katwesterman Hi, @katwesterman here with more Venice Beach scenes for @guardiantravelsnaps ... Along the boardwalk is the famous "Muscle Beach" an outdoor weightlifting area.... Legendary amongst the body builders..... This guy did this crazy sit up at least twenty times... After he left I tried it myself... Luckily I didn't have to hang there for a long time before someone came to help me... 1mon

katwesterman Hey everyone @katwesterman here posting for @guardiantravelsnaps continuing on our tour of Southern California beach life..... This photo is early morning at Venice Beach.... I must admit the lifeguard gets a pretty awesome parking spot... With waves breaking on both sides of the breakwater it's also a pretty great surfing spot... And the sand is allegedly one of the finest for creating sand sculptures... Just out of the picture to the right were two guys dancing, several people waking up from their tents and a woman in gladiator boots taking a belfie. 1mon

First up is Venice Beach... This is a photo of the famous Venice Beach sign which is actually now a replica of the original sign that hung up almost a century ago...

katwesterman Sun kissed... Decided to investigate what all the #manhattanbeachpier fuss was about... Navigated through some horrible traffic, a very not nice parking situation, hung over the edge and nearly lost my car keys and then this moment appeared. Yup.... Manhattan Beach lives up to its fame.... Super excited to be taking over the @guardiantravelsnaps feed tomorrow for a couple of days... Stop by for a visit and stay awhile.#featuremeinstagood @instagood 1mon

katwesterman Many of you know I am a photographer and as such have been a huge fan/supporter of Andy Adams/ @FlakPhoto for a long long time. I spend hours pouring over his site.. If you want to know anything about the world of photography his site is it... As one person said Andy cuts through the fluff and brings us what is important in the world of comtemporary photography... So with that said you can imagine how excited I was to find that he has created the flak photo digest for the iPad... Issue 2 drops this Saturday. You can subscribe to it on his site at FlakPhoto.com... Do. You will be so happy you did.. This photo is his photo that I have reposted... 2mon
