Southern California Moments
Your photos from around the Southland
In the amber of the moment

Photographer David Ingraham says he’s always on the lookout for poetic use of light and shadows. So when he saw how these “shadows were nicely separated, almost in a choreographed sense,” he couldn’t resist snapping a half-dozen photos.

As for the added bonus of capturing a couple of birds mid-flight? Ingraham reveals, “Seagulls at Venice Beach are so ubiquitous that it’s almost a challenge not to get one in your shot! Nevertheless, I think they help complete the composition here.”

The image was taken with Ingraham's iPhone 4S.

Fog rolls in at the Manhattan Beach Pier

Ryan Vaarsi photographed the Manhattan Beach Pier shrouded in fog on Oct. 5 during a Worldwide InstaMeet, an event for Instragram users.  

"I had been there for a little over an hour when this wall of fog moved in seemingly out of nowhere," he said. "It swept across the pier and dissipated amazingly fast."

Vaarsi took this photo at sunset with a Canon EOS 70D.

Praying in the end zone

Steve Neimand photographed University of Oregon football players Darren Carrington and Chance Allen during a match against UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Oct. 11. 

"I guess what struck me was that two people were having such a intimate moment while surrounded by 100,000 rabid fans in the stands in full party mode," Neimand said. "Several UCLA players had also been praying in the same end zone a few minutes earlier, which made me wonder whose side God was on that day."

Oregon defeated UCLA 42-30.

Neimand used a Canon EOS 70D.
