Reader photos: Best of Southern California moments for February 2013

I make a big deal out of being a car-less Angeleno and believe that, in a city where everyone drives, the only way to discover the city is to get out and walk. This holds doubly true for photography — it’s hard to make images while you’re cruising at 60 mph on the freeway.

So it’s no surprise that two of my favorite photos from the month could only be taken while walking around L.A. We start off with Mark Rosales’ shot of passengers riding a bus, which is part of a project focusing on public transportation. As Rosales said in an earlier Southern California Moments post, public transportation offers a great opportunity for photographers to make some great images:

“Such a mix of people all coming from different places that led them all to such a confined space and every each one of them going to their own different destinations … you never know what you’re going to witness.”

Taken on Bunker Hill — Downtown L.A. is such a fantastic place to photograph — Jorge Gonzalez captures young women in what appear to be quinceañera dresses in a crosswalk on Grand Avenue, “Abbey Road”-style.

Other favorites from the month include Karol Franks’ image of a fence and tree silhouetted by the sun in Carpinteria, Sergey Sus’ image of a woman staring into her camera’s LCD screen, and Lenny Lloyd de Silva’s image of parents watching their children fly kites at Point Fermin.

Spring is coming and the weather’s getting nicer, so my challenge to you is to get out there and walk. Walk and discover L.A. and Southern California. Pick a point on the map, walk there, bring your camera and make some images along the way. Then, submit them to moments.latimes.com or to our L.A. Times Community Flickr group.
