I chose the photos based on the following considerations: story told, amusing factor (as nebulous as Flickr’s “interesting” factor), and composition.
Engineering building, UCSD, La Jolla
Isa and Gabby, Orange County Fair
Balneario La Quinta Mosqueda, Guanajuato
Tía Luisa serenades Ernie and Tamara, Pomona
Nomar Garciaparra’s bottom of the 9th grand slam, Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
Hippo love, San Francisco
Death, Monterey Park
Halloween Party, City Terrace (East LA)
Mom and Dad, Whittier
Smiling again (or me post haircut), Hacienda Heights
Um. I didn’t take any pictures this month. How sad.
