Last night at First Thursday, South Bay photographer, Allan Stansbury, showcased his landscape photos in the exhibition titled “In the Eye of the Beholder.” The exhibit drew a crowd from all over Southern California, including Pasadena, Torrance, Mission Viejo, Whittier, Palos Verdes, and Long Beach with its beautiful and almost painting-like photos.

Stansbury, who was born in Corpus Christi, Tex., but raised in Torrance, is an Information Technology Specialist by day, and through his job he discovered his passion for photography and the Southern California landscape. The passion that led to “In the Eye of the Beholder.”

“Wandering around this Earth of ours can present us with something amazing just by the turn of our head,” said Stansbury.

His photography gives off a whimsical sense of beauty. The photos almost look like paintings, which only heightens the natural beauty we normally see with our naked eye. Photos of botanical gardens are reminiscent of Van Gogh’s “Field with Flowers,” and to bring that to a photo is truly amazing.

The exhibit is presented by the San Pedro Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the curator, Ingrid Dietrich, is excited that the opening night was such a success.

“A lot of visitors showed up last night, which is my purpose of curating these exhibitions for the center,” said Dietrich.

The exhibit will run until June 30 and is located at The San Pedro Convention & Visitor Bureau, 225 West 6th St. It is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.spcvb.com.
