Yellow brick road

Alon Goldsmith is a regular at the Mar Vista Farmers Market, held on the closed-off Grandview Avenue in West Los Angeles.

"I've always been fascinated by the yellow lines on the street that run between the market stalls," the photographer said. "They make me think of the yellow brick road."

Goldsmith has captured hundreds of images of people interacting with the lines in various ways but said he never "quite found what he was looking for."

Last month, however, his daughter happened to jump in perfect alignment. "I got low, tapped out a shot, and finally nailed it."

The photograph was taken with an iPhone 6.

A hiding place

Mark Rosales photographed this image on a hot afternoon in Venice. A man was enjoying a soft drink on his porch -- hiding from the blistering sun -- when Rosales snapped this photo of him.

"I noticed how the deep shadows of the tree fall on him, which created a bit of a mystery with the subject," Rosales said. "It told another story."

Rosales made this image using a Leica M9 with a Voigtlander 28-millimeter 3.5 Color-Skopar lens.

Death Valley mirage

Joseph Voves captured this photo on a day trip from Los Angeles to Death Valley with his wife.

Voves said that as the sun was setting, he noticed the evolving contrast on the sky, mountains and land, and how the salt bed lit up to look like a lake of water. He said he pulled the car over to take a series of photos and later stitched them together to create this panorama.

He used a Canon PowerShot S90 to make the photo.

Mohawk of the sea

For Justin Woolley, every neighborhood in Los Angeles is a different discovery. He'll wander any given neighborhood for hours at a time -- getting to know its people and landscape through his photography. 

Last month, he ventured to Venice with the goal of capturing the ocean blues. From atop the pier, he snapped this photo of a single wave.

"I also love how this scene could potentially be anywhere on the planet, given it is very minimal and simply a wave in the vast ocean," he said.

Woolley made the image using a Canon 60D with a 20mm f/2.8 lens on Feb. 15.

24 Hour Project co-founder reflects on 2015 global photo event, looks ahead

Last Saturday, 2,030 registered photographers from 101 countries participated in the fourth annual 24 Hour Project, a worldwide interactive, online event.

Photographers -- including one of the project's co-creators, Sam Smotherman, a frequent Southern California Moments contributor -- roamed the streets on March 21 and published a photo every hour for 24 hours. They posted their snapshots in real time to Instagram, the popular online photo-sharing service that allows users to simultaneously post on other social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.

The project's theme has remained the same since its conception in 2011: to capture “the essence and complexity of the human condition.” So, every hour, images filtered in from 650 cities around the world, including pictures documenting Albuquerque nightlife and the early morning hustle of a Hong Kong fish market as well as a father and daughter sitting together as they sell flowers on a Tehran street.

“We wanted to see...
