Little Dancer Aged Fourteen

Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, originally uploaded by billselak.

We went to the Norton Simon museum yesterday to take some pictures for a friend. Isabelle thought I'd get in trouble for taking this, but the guard was busy talking to a cute girl. I like the highlights on this (purposefully) underexposed shot. I wanted a different take on this famous sculpture that's been photographed a lot..

Francis' wife Nicole asked me to take a nice picture of him. I was practicing using my new flash at the time.

There is a violin maker in downtown Claremont. I just picked up lunch and was walking down the alley when I saw this.

Industrial Fire

Industrial Fire, originally uploaded by billselak.

There was a huge fire at a plastic recycling plant. It completely shut down the 60 freeway at the 15. I was able to avoid the insane traffic as I drove along to 215 (on my way to the Angel game).

Inside the Union Pacific

Inside the Union Pacific, originally uploaded by billselak.

I was taking some shots of a train and the conductor invited me on board! I got to go inside the engine and take pictures (like this one). It was super cool. Thanks for the invite, Mr. Train Conductor.
