Default Local architectural features

I suppose that lifeguard towers represent the architectural style most commonly found here. This one is near the Newport Beach pier, just south of Huntington Beach.

Yes,

Perfect composition, establishing a communication between the two buildings

Picture is nice, the texture you got is amazing, but i have mixed feelings about the composition. Not quite sure yet. I'll give a second look later.

The more modern Huntington Beach lifeguard stands are in sharp contrast to the old wooden ones in Newport Beach. Not sure what all the strange angles are for...maybe just for "style".

Here you can see a number of lifeguard stands looking northward toward the HB pier. With about 16 miles of shoreline and beach, we need a lot of them.

The new version of the lifeguard stand looks like a porta-loo!
