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.

 Dorsey and San Pedro, two longtime City Section powers, played in a scrimmage on Friday night at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Both schools were hitting hard on defense while trying to get their offenses in gear. San Pedro will probably start its first sophomore at quarterback in Coach Mike Walsh's 23 seasons. Jacob Miller played with poise and confidence. The Pirates will be relying on Pete Palacios at running back and linebacker.

The men who popularized the Catalina Island theme song “26 Miles Across the Sea” more than a half-century ago will return to the island's iconic Casino on Friday for an evening concert. The Four Preps , with original lead singer Bruce Belland, will perform in the Avalon Theatre, an Art Deco classic that gained national prominence when bands were big and movies were just beginning to talk. During the 6-8 p.m. concert, the Preps will sing a variety of numbers, including doo-wop and pop standards, besides their late 1950s hit "26 Miles Across the Sea . "  The event is a benefit for the Rotary Club of Avalon and its charities.

A congressman is urging federal officials to more thoroughly investigate the safety of a San Pedro butane storage facility situated near homes, schools and shopping areas in San Pedro. Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles) sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding that the agency take additional steps to protect the public from the risk of explosion at the Rancho LPG Holdings site on North Gaffey Street. Waxman said he was concerned that an earlier Homeland Security inspection of the facility was cursory, did little to verify the company's safety information and conflicted with recent findings by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
