My memories of the Laguna firestorm of 1993 are still vivid, 20 years later. I photographed the day of the burn, weeks of clean-up and the feature stories that followed. It was a distinctive career experience for me as a photographer, covering my hometown on fire. It could have been anywhere in Orange County, but it was my hometown. It's one thing to see big fires burn other people's homes, but when they belong to your neighbors and friends, it was something else. I learned about the fire from a scanner report of a 2-acre brush fire near Laguna Canyon Road and the 405 Freeway a little before noon on Oct. 27. I was on assignment for the Laguna News Post shooting a business portrait.

features of the year A feature photo introduces readers to the subject of a story and provides the visual backdrop for the narrative. The feature picture is difficult for photographers because, like much photojournalism, there isn't much time for planning. On the way from one assignment to another with a tight schedule, a picturesque moment may unfold in front of the photographer. He or she has to stop everything -- often the car -- and capture the shot. Other times, the photo goes with a story, and it's unclear how visual the event will be. The photographer has to plan for anything and come away with gold.

Staff photographer Kent Treptow's photograph in Thursday's paper of a male osprey returning to his nest on Shellmaker Island is a beautiful shot. Kent spent many hours photographing ospreys in the Back Bay for his award-winning photo essay a few years ago, so when this assignment came up, Kent was the perfect photographer for the job. This nest is also home to three chicks that are believed to be the first wild osprey births in Orange County. ?

THOUGHTS FROM THE SCENE: A picture is worth a thousand words, so the saying goes. Well in some situations, words are worth more. Photographers are often faced with photo opportunities that just don't work. Not every story can come across through a photograph. As with this situation: you have a great story about a student -- Shirin Oskooi of Newport Harbor High School -- winning an essay contest, but there are not very many ways to visually capture the gist of it. This gives the photographer a 50% chances of being visually successful.

Silhouettes are a trick of the trade. No matter what the subject is, a silhouette always catches the eye. Daily Pilot photographer Kent Treptow found a nice opportunity to use this technique in this week's photo. Silhouettes are useful in situations when the subject can't be identified for whatever reason or when a story calls for a generic type shot that doesn't want to single out one person. They also can be used to help the photographer clean up busy subject environments, like Kent's beach shot.

Jennifer K Mahal In soft shades of gray and harsh curves of black, photographer Todd Webb gives us entrance into the New Mexico world of Georgia O'Keeffe. The 39 photographs on display until January at the Orange County Museum of Art's Satellite Gallery in South Coast Plaza span nearly 30 years of the famed painter's life -- from 1955 to 1981. "In Webb's photos of New Mexico, we see the landscape and O'Keeffe through the eyes of another artist," Sarah Vure, curator at the Newport Beach-based museum, said of "Georgia O'Keeffe: The Artist's Landscape," An O'Keeffe painting and its subject capture Webb's lens in one photograph.

They found the home listing in the PennySaver, of all places. Todd Porter and Diane Cu barely glanced at the interior of the run-down three-bedroom, two-bathroom house when they arrived for a walk-through, and instead they headed straight to the sprawling backyard overgrown with brush and suffocated by a giant pine. "We looked at each other and said, 'This is it,'" Porter recalled. The Costa Mesa backyard wasn't neat or squared off like Southern California yards are supposed to be. Instead, the 11,000-square-foot lot was a jagged, oddly shaped U. It was perfect for the couple's plans: To carve out a quiet oasis where they could live a garden-to-plate lifestyle.

A young humpback whale swam less than six feet away from Bryant Austin while he was snorkeling off the Kingdom of Tonga in 2004. Lowering his camera, afraid it would get struck out of his hand, Austin was mesmerized by the marine mammal's subtly hued skin, belly button and musculature. A couple seconds later, he felt a tap on his shoulder, which from its force - and the fact that he was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean - was not from a human. Turning around, Austin found himself staring into the eyes of the calf's mother.

Newport Beach police said Tuesday night they were unaware of photos of celebrity Justin Bieber allegedly smoking what appears to be a marijuana cigarette in a local hotel. Sgt. Mike James didn't say whether the department was planning to investigate, saying that prior to a phone call from Daily Pilot staff that he hadn't heard anything about it.

NEWPORT BEACH — Some people in the audience gasped as the aerial photo flashed on the screen at the front of the room. They were reacting in wonderment as a color shot came up of the so-called "Loop," a section of the Green River that snakes through Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Two sets of bends in the river, a tributary of the Colorado River, seemed so close to each other in the frame that they almost touched — but isthmuses separated them. Photographer Peter McBride took the picture from his father's Cessna 180 as part of a project to document the length of the nearly 1,500-mile Colorado River in photos.
