WHAT THE CAMERA SAW: The Week and More

Up, Down, Up

January 13, 1998

Ours is a world in perpetual motion. Firefighters escort residents displaced by a fire at a South-Central Los Angeles retirement home. Dino Hatzopoulos, 12, sleds along on the seat of his pants at Lake Arrowhead. And a bicyclist takes a shortcut up an escalator between hilly downtown Los Angeles streets.

Each Day's a Miracle

Brieana Bethune Jones, 13, participates in a worship service near her home in Moreno Valley. Because of a series of mishaps at her birth, Brieana is a spastic quadriplegic, unable to use her limbs or her voice. Her mom has lingered in a coma since the delivery, which robbed mother and child of oxygen for a critical five to 10 minutes. Even so, Brieana is an above-average student who is actively involved outside her home.

Framing Devices

The way we see the world all depends upon our perspective. And vice versa, with regard to how others see us. Two women are glimpsed through a bubble gum machine. Nearby, a pedestrian is framed by mannequins' heads as he walks through downtown's Garment District.
