Gabe Mendez captured this photo in Hermosa Beach while at an "Instameet." The day was mostly clear and sunny before thick mist rolled in.
"The fact that the sun gave way to cool dark weather didn't dampen our spirits one bit," he said. "It just brought the light out of us all and we made the best out of it and had lots of fun together."
He snapped this photo of his friend after he was captivated by the reflections of both her and the pier while she was practicing yoga.
