Reader photos: Best of Southern California Moments for September

This month’s best of Southern California Moments reflect the end of summer. The boys on the beach with the soccer ball, the young girl splashing in the pool, and the boy in the parade with a makeshift lasso. Summer photos in Southern California are often brighter and more festive, and very often have a lighthearted, whimsical feel.

Another pattern in this month’s photos is the number of children present. The kids are out of school, and their parents are documenting their days at home. There are two photos in this month’s favorites from parents capturing pictures of their children, both of them cute, intimate and interesting images. Paolo Pamintuan’s little girl would rather be an astronaut, and Kelly Mitch perfectly captures her daughter’s head just above the surface of the water.

This month’s selects end on a quieter note, with Shawn S. Park’s landscape of Disney’s California Adventure, and Kim C. Martin’s photograph of Mike Turturro of the Forty Fours leaning, eyes closed, on his upright bass during a show in Fullerton.

It might be strange to note a change in seasons in Southern California — a land famously without real “seasons” — but the change in weather and daylight hours definitely affect people’s photography: more night shots, more rain shots and better light due to cloudy or overcast skies as opposed to the bright, cloudless summer days. I’m looking forward to it.
