I run and walk the Strand nearly every day. On one side there's the beach and expansive Pacific, and on the other, beautiful million dollar homes. This makes running very entertaining. I've noticed myself being drawn to painted terra cotta tile - probably because I've spent so much time browsing gorgeous tile at Filmore Clark Tile Studio. I love the way the beach houses use colorful terra cotta tile on the outdoor stair risers. A few of them stopped me in my tracks. These were too fabulous to pass by without snapping a photo.
