Reader Photos: Best of Southern California Moments for September

When we saw Steve Boelhouwer’s photograph of SpongeBob SquarePants being detained by police on Hollywood Boulevard, we thought, “Man, how funny is that?” and chose it as our Southern California Moment for Sept. 14.

Reporter Andrew Blankstein thought it was pretty funny, too, and called up the LAPD to ask if there had been any incidents reported involving someone in a SpongeBob costume. The next day, the photo had exploded across the Web and TMZ.com had posted a video of the scene.

This was, no doubt, a photo that made the month. It captured one of those surreal moments that prove you never know when that memorable image or decisive moment will appear. And although you might possess a camera rig that costs thousands of dollars, the best camera is always the one you have on you.
