Bob Cat in the Arroyo

Pasadena, CA -- This wild cat looked either injured or hungry. He had wondered onto a popular path in the Arroyo Seco seemingly begging for food. A group of young men with sticks and rocks in hand approached the frightened bob cat while I was taking photos of it. When they saw me taking photos of the cat, as well as them with their weapons, they quickly dropped their weapons, acting as if nothing happened.

This day, my camera was my weapon, and it worked.

Portrait of a Vendor

Venice Beach, CA -- One of the joys in my life is giving to those less fortunate. In Venice Beach, hundreds of local vendors set up shop on the walkway selling their goods and services. While some make a decent living, many are on the edge of homelessness and have very little, let alone a photograph of themselves.

Sometimes I shoot portraits of locals and hand them a picture the following week. This young man was thrilled to have a photo of he and his father.
