I have seen and been close to lightning and thunder here and abroad, but never this close. I was at my sister's house in Costa Mesa when thunder rocked the house -- it sounded like the sky burst open. We all jumped up and looked out the window. Another blast lighted up the sky. It seemed like it touched down just blocks away. I, of course, ran for my camera, pointed at the sky and hoped for the best. My nephew and I urged the lightning to blast above our heads once more time for the cameras, as he pointed his video camera into the sky. We knelt, sat, stood back-to-back, stared into the sky. Nothing.

VIC LEIPZIG AND LOU MURRAY Many people get dressed up, go to dinner or a party and drink champagne to celebrate the start of a new year. Not us, at least not this year. We went to the city dump in Brownsville, Texas, to digiscope. This deserves a bit of explanation. First, digiscoping is the hottest thing in bird photography. It involves connecting a digital camera to a spotting telescope using an adaptor ring. This allows really close-up photography.

Vic went to Oregon last week to visit his mother and a couple of his eight siblings. With our garden in full production, I stayed home to “mind the farm.” I also had a hidden agenda. As soon as I dropped Vic off at John Wayne Airport, I headed to a camera store and bought a new Nikon Coolpix P90, a 12-megapixel digital camera with 24x optical zoom and a terrific macro feature. I couldn’t wait to try it out, so my next stop was the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.

Allen MacDonald It's a pleasure to announce that the spirit of Alfred Hitchcock is alive, well and thriving in the imagination of director David Fincher. Fincher, the versatile talent behind a string of increasingly large-scale productions ("Alien 3," "Seven," "The Game" and "Fight Club"), has narrowed the playing field and stripped his storytelling down to the bare essentials with his new film, "Panic Room." Taking place during a single evening, Fincher experiments with the thriller genre by squeezing every drop of suspense he can out of an outstanding but refreshingly simple premise created by writer David Koepp ("Jurassic Park")

After previous meetings were dominated by alcohol-related issues, members said this gathering was the most productive in weeks. About 50 residents filled the Main Street Library meeting room, clapping as the committee approved one recommendation after the other.

Cameron Lew is truly one of the cool kids of the social media age. The 17-year-old Huntington Beach High School junior has been shooting and editing videos for his YouTube channel since eighth grade. However, Cameron's filming career started as early as 8 years old. Armed with an old DV tape camera that he used to "steal" from his dad, he would film his Lego figures and Hot Wheels and just make "silly stuff" with his friends. On his 13th birthday, he got a camera and saved up enough money to buy a computer of his own. Today, he is winning film festivals and has expanded his genre beyond building blocks and toy cars.

Four dozen photographs coat the wall and hang from the ceiling of the Huntington Beach Art Center, each one taken with a high-definition camera that coaxes out pores, wrinkles and haggard expressions. Most, if not all, of the subjects are strangers to one another, but their lives intersected when they walked into the center on Main Street, posed before Gina Genis' camera and penned a fragment of their life story on paper. The 48 portraits — and nearly 200 waiting to be printed — comprise an ongoing exhibit that Genis created to put a face, literally, on the recession.
