The calm before the storm

Stuft Shirt Restaurant (now a clothing boutique called A'maree's)

Architects: Thornton Ladd and John Kelsey (1961)

Location: Newport Beach, CA


When I arrived a few minutes before this shot, I was griping that there wasn't a cloud in the sky and it wasn't going to make for a very interesting photograph. You can see how clear it was just a few moments prior in the previous photo. But out of nowhere, all these clouds just zoomed in and the sunlight streaked across them as if on cue.


There was nobody in the building, or I would have asked them to turn on the lights.


A huge THANK YOU to Heather David for her diligent research in locating this place and finding out about its history.
