The exterior of Beacon House is the color of the sea, a combination of grays and whites that characterize the ocean in its many moods. Seen in bright sunlight, there are almost fluctuating qualities to the chromatic tones of the old Victorian, much as the hues of the Pacific seem to shift and change through stages of its temperament.

Driving across the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro at sunset,  Aydin Palabiyikoglu photographed this scene with his HTC  Amaze 4G phone on July 21. He had a camera in his trunk but he used his phone instead so he wouldn't miss this moment, he said. He adds that if you have favorable light and know what you're doing, you don't need expensive equipment to take good photos.  Each week, we're featuring photos of Southern California submitted by readers.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Wednesday for a San Pedro man accused of drugging and having sex with a neighbor's 80-pound dog. Christopher Caceres, 22, is charged with felony animal cruelty, burglary and misdemeanor sexual assault of an animal. He faces up to nine years in prison if convicted of all charges, according to prosecutors. Caceres was arrested after the owner of the 80-pound Akita saw Caceres on home surveillance video allegedly assaulting the family dog in the yard, the Daily Breeze   reported . The homeowner feared a prowler had been trying to break into his house in recent months after he found a cellphone in the yard and heard unexplained wails from his dog in the middle of the night, only to find nothing when he investigated.

What was intended as a peaceful morning photographing the sunrise turned frantic for Mike Czako early Saturday when he was witness to the dramatic efforts to save three people swept from a San Pedro breakwall by a large wave. A 49-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy survived. A 36-year-old man who had apparently tried to help the others was later pronounced dead after being transported to Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in San Pedro. Initial reports indicated as many as three people had been knocked off the Cabrillo Beach breakwater by a wave, but Port Police Lt. Michael Capodanno said the man who died was one of several who attempted to help after the older man and boy were swept away.

As a little girl, Anne Gusha walked into and was charmed by Williams' Book Store in San Pedro. She was 8 years old and the year was 1928. It would be more than five decades before the store became hers -- decades she spent working behind the counter. Now Anne and her son Jerry, who is the store's co-owner, are being forced to close the bookstore. Opened in 1909, Williams' Book Store is considered by some to be the oldest continuously operating bookstore in Los Angeles (Vroman's, which opened in 1894, is in Pasadena)
