New Newport Beach California Photos

Some new Newport Beach California photos are available to buy as prints at my Photoshelter website and some are available to license as stock photos at my Getty Images portfolio. These images are from early 2010 and include Newport Pier, Balboa Peninsula, Dory Fishing Fleet Market, Balboa Fun Zone, Balboa Island Ferry, Balboa Peninsula, The Wedge, Newport Jetty, Balboa Peninsula, Balboa Market, and a lot of familiar Newport Beach sights.

I found out a few things have changed since I took these photos. The famous old Balboa Market has been torn down and is now a parking lot. I was able to capture a few images while it was still standing including the Balboa Market Sign. And the Balboa Fun Zone bumper cars, carousel and some other attractions no longer exist and have been replaced by the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum.
