Reader Photos: Best of Southern California Moments for March

Spring comes a little late this year, and March brought us winter rainstorms, Mardi Gras and a St. Patrick’s Day-themed Elmo. The images submitted remind us of the importance of always looking for that unique perspective, even if it’s as simple as moving your frame to take advantage of negative space, as in the image of the Theme Building at LAX, or acting quickly to capture a decisive moment on a Hollywood escalator.

For April, we’re looking forward to more great moments – and might even have a couple of challenges coming.

Submit images to Southern California Moments here or through Flickr. Check out all Southern California Moments photos of the day here.
