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."

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.

Love, declared

When you have something nice to tell someone, why not tell the world? Or, why not post it on signs around the neighborhood?

Photographer Theresa Solis Pollard saw these signs in the Ocean Park area of Santa Monica.

"I have no idea who these people are or what Holly did, but these signs were taped up on posts all over the neighborhood," wrote Pollard in an email. "I hope Linda saw them!"

Solis took this photo with an iPhone 5 and edited the original photo with Picfx.
