It’s one thing to admire our beautiful community, but don’t you sometimes just want to record it so you can share it? You could always snap away with your camera phone, but it’d be a lot cooler if you knew what you were doing. Well, Ralph Velasco, who leads photo walking tours here and elsewhere, has you covered.   Tell us about your tours and background. I teach travel photography in a classroom setting throughout Southern California, and my students said that although they enjoyed the classes very much, they wanted to actually get out and shoot with me, as well, so I resurrected the idea of taking people out on walking tours to photograph in great locations, which I started developing back in Chicago, where I’m originally from.

Young Chang A gauze bandage on a child's soft skin and the happy face drawn in black ink that smiles out from it. A stethoscope on an untoughened chest -- the feel of cold metal that comes rushing back from days when you, too, were young. When the hospital seemed a scary place to be. The miracle of heart surgery, the everyday-ness of matters involving life and death. Walter Urie saw art in these hospital moments -- in the doctors who wake up every morning to save people's lives, in the children who grow to be adults after fearing they wouldn't.

Lolita Harper The innocent wisdom of children, born into one the most adulterated lifestyles in the world, shines through in the film "Born into Brothels." The documentary follows the children of prostitutes, pimps and drug dealers in the red-light district of Calcutta, India, as they learn to look at their dismal lives through the lens of a camera.

NICK MEDRUD, 19 La Mirada "I would definitely say photography, because I've been doing photography for about nine years."

Michael Miller Fernando Mallory has entered the Orange County Fair's photography competition for the last four years, but awards don't mean everything to him.

COSTA MESA - Like many musical prodigies, she reached a point where it was no longer just about the music. For Haeyoon Miller, the Julliard-trained violinist who died when a tree crushed her car last week, it was when "everyone else was just another competitor, not just a true friend," her older sister Erika Ahn said at a Costa Mesa memorial service Thursday evening. Plenty of friends came to mourn the loss of Miller, 29, whose death made people imagine how they could have easily been under that eucalyptus tree.

Walking through her house, which is a mixture of modern and vintage, pretty and eclectic, Karin Crook points out her photographs that line the walls. A steel staircase in Madrid, the Pointe Vecchio bridge in Florence, or the view out a window in Dublin are just a few of the subjects of Crook’s art. Remembering, really seeing the world, is part of what draws her to photography. Sitting with her eyes closed in class one day in middle school, a teacher asked the students if they could remember the color of the walls.
