The things that tie us together can be as sacred as family, as playful as shared interests. An environmentally concerned couple--one in her own specially designed outdoor gear--participate in a walk to call attention to the lack of open space in the L.A. area. Hells Angels kick back at a gathering in Ventura. And in Santa Ana. Turner Stewart, 105, gets a hug from great-grandson Thomas Hollins Jr., 3.
Sometimes, it's a wee bit difficult to differentiate among the animal species. In search of a primal rush, Jarret Ewanek wipes out on his street luge during the X-Games in San Diego, and a coyote lazily surveys a park in Fullerton.
