Reader photos: Best of Southern California moments for April 2013

We hit the ground running in April’s best of Southern California Moments, with Michael Ares’ image of a child running past a mural in Venice. The mural, position and pose of the child and composition of the photo are excellent in this shot. From there Nancy Dushkin takes us high up above Dodger Stadium in a helicopter, and Kathy Degner captures a bizarre moment of one pigeon “photobombing” another.

Two other personal favorites from the month include Romeo Doneza’s image of a woman framed by the light and shadows created by a skylight at Union Station, and Justin Jakobson’s haunting image of an abandoned Santa Fe rail depot in Monrovia. Jakobson’s use of cross-processing, or when photographs are processed in chemicals intended for a different type of film, is a great demonstration of how photographers would achieve a specific look in images before the advent of easy filters in Photoshop and Instagram.

We close out the set with a Alyssa Hunter’s image of a 6 a.m. scene at Mission Viejo Lake. The placid lake waters, reflections of the mountains and cool early morning tones creates a scene that makes the viewer feel very relaxed, and perhaps a little jealous.
