Santa Monica and the end of Route 66

Last Summer, with a Friend I drove across the US from East to West from Chicago to Santa Monica in California.  For much of the road trip we followed the famous Route 66, although we made a detour to Las Vegas for a week.  It was my second visit to Santa Monica in California, it's a lovely place, somewhere I could definitely live although the cost of living seems very high.  I took the majority of my photos from that trip in Santa Monica, especially down by the Pier.  Here's a black and white edit of the sun setting over the Ocean:
