2012 Mt. SAC Relays - Part 1

I spent three days this month in Walnut covering the 54th running of the Mt. SAC Relays. Interestingly, I heard that this is the largest Track & Field meet in the world. Not sure if this is the case, but it was nice to be back to the typical three day format (unlike last year). Below is the article that ran in the newspaper and a few selections from the first day's Steeple Chase. The wide angle photos were shot with a remote. More to follow...

Forum Music Festival

Jessica's Show Choir performed a couple weeks ago at the historic Plummber Auditorium in Fullerton which was built in the 1930s. The auditorium has Spanish Colonial Revival architecture with Italian Renaissance design elements and seats over 1,300 people. It features an elaborate ceiling of painted and decorated rough-hewn beams, the original wrought iron chandeliers, arched side isles with composite capitals, and other classical ornamentation. It was hard to get a decent exposure up there, but here's what I came up with.
