Reader Gordon Pate of Costa Mesa wrote in last week praising a shot

taken of 15-month-old Gabriele Eggerling, as some of the 15,000

lights on the 90-foot Christmas tree at South Coast Plaza glowed

close by:

"I just wanted to comment and congratulate you on the photograph

taken by Douglas Zimmerman, which the Pilot published Tuesday on the

front page of the paper, 'The light of daze.' I don't know where you

find these guys, but this photograph of this child and the things

that are happening with the lights in the background is just

absolutely superb. Give my compliments to everybody that was involved

in making this your front page picture."
