This is a view of the Newport Pier, located on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, CA. This camera is hosted by my buddy Matty and is located on the roof of my old apartment on 17th street. The camera faces southwest, but it has been known to move a bit with a good wind. Depending on the recent wind, and the zoom, the boardwalk may be visible in the lower right corner of the picture. In the middle of the picture is the 19th st. lifeguard tower and the surfbreak behind it called 'Secrets' (it isn't much of a secret). The break to the left of the picture is called 'The Point' (it isn't much of a point). Over the course of a year, sunset moves horizontally across the length of the pier signaling the change of season. The summer sun sets to the right of the picture, the winter sun sets to the left, and during spring and fall, the sunset lands right in the middle.

This picture is taken by a camera located in the back yard of my new apartment in Santa Cruz. The view is of "Taxi Beach", which is where my dog likes to hang out (or hide) from time to time. When Taxi is romping, the traffic on the site goes way up, but when Taxi isn't there, the view is a bit lacking. Hey, I know who the star is and you can see plenty of Taxi here. If the view is boring, this camera does include a mini-weather station that displays current temprature, humidity and barometric pressure. Also, the yard is being encroached upon by bamboo plants, and they grow fast. One day they will take over, maybe you will be watching. In the meantime, Taxi and I looked hard for this apartment and it is pretty cool. Taxi and I are happy, a short walk from the beach, the surf, and finally out of Tiny House.

This is another view of the Balboa Peninsula. This camera, also hosted by my buddy Matty, was left behind to live out its remaining days at the beach. The camera, which is the original WalkCam, has an internal spotting problem that is a result of years of salt spray. Through the speckles, you can see south towards the 15th street lifeguard tower and a friendly little surfbreak called "SchoolYards". In the distance is Dana Point. Enjoy the view while this little camera keeps chugging, the view may include sunrises, riptides, birdies, construction, trash trucks, rainbows and who knows what else?

If you are looking for this cam,it is easy to find. The major street is West Balboa and the cross street is 11th. When you find it, look up and wave, everyone does. The camera is hosted by the HappyRox and mounted on top of the world's largest partying houseboat. The houseboat is docked next to another one of my old residences, this one was an old beach shack on 11th street. The shack was bulldozed to make room for my friend Jay's new home. Some nights while visiting Newport, I get drunk and sneak into the yard and look for stuff I buried when I lived there. This is a bit awkward since it is now a livingroom.

Welcome to the Live Camera Page! This webpage is the electronic descendant of the somewhat famous WalkCam Page that graced this space for a number of years. The current incarnation of the webpage allows virtual tourists to check the fog or the crowds in Newport Beach (my former home) or Santa Cruz (my current home). If you want to explore more, please check the F.A.Q. for information about the site, its author and the history of the other cameras that were part of the original WalkCam Page. If you would like to make your visit more permanent, please take a minute to sign the crappy Guestbook that I don't even know how to administer or drop me an email. In any case, thanks for visiting and enjoy the views.
