My Best Shot

January 09, 1994

To know that Dr. Gunnar E. Christiansen of Anaheim is an ophthalmologist is to know only half of the story. Twelve years ago, he started putting together free travelogues for homebound senior citizens. Today he does them for both shut-ins and the hundreds who come to his public shows. "I'll probably retire soon, but I'll keep doing the travelogues," he says. One of his recent shows centered on Paris, which he had just visited for the first time. "We were at the top of the Centre Pompidou, where the plaza attracts many street performers and mimes. I looked down and saw this fire eater. I ran down the stairs and got there just in the nick of time. I only got the one shot." Needless to say, it's in his travelogue.
