Final Beam

The Huntington Hospital is in the midst of an $80 million expansion to their emergency department. On Monday, construction crews lowered the final steel beam into place and the hospital P.R. department held a small ceremony to commemorate the event. Completion of the expansion is expected by December of next year. It was a pleasure to be there and photograph the festivities.

California Philharmonic

I had the opportunity to photograph the California Philharmonic Orchestra last night as part of the "Festival on the Green" summer concert series at the Arboretum. It was Movie Magic night, so they played several pieces from movie soundtracks. My family was able to enjoy the concert and a picnic dinner while I photographed the event. Great evening under the stars in Arcadia.

Beat the Heat

It was nice to have some time this afternoon to cool off at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center. Swimming a few laps really felt good!

Youth Boxing

I had never photographed organized boxing before, so I was pretty excited to shoot at the Duarte Youth Boxing Show yesterday. The event was governed by USA Boxing and showcased the talents of amateur boxers ranging from age 9 to mid 20s. This image is of two 9 year olds in the first bout of the day. I was really impressed with their skill and quickness.
