Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain shared the stage for a few moments today at the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency held at a megachurch in Orange County. Rev. Rick Warren invited the two U.S. Presidential candidates to each spend an hour separately answering the same questions, Obama had the stage for the first hour. At the halfway point, there was a quick but very cordial meeting of the two candidates when the changeover took place. A little bit of history.

OK, I know the Olympics is "the" sports story right now for most folks, but David Beckham and the LA Galaxy were back in action last night in a spirited match against Los Angeles rival Chivas USA. The game ended in a 2-2 tie, but Beckham and friends were lucky to get that with an injury time goal to even it with about 2 minutes left.

A nice thunderstorm, lots of lightning but no rain here, passed just offshore at Venice Beach tonight, I was busy editing photos from an earlier gig on deadline, but I did snap this shot from the front porch. If you click on the image, you can see it large and it looks much better.

Had a gig photographing a basketball camp by hoops star Baron Davis , the newest member of the Los Angeles Clippers and former UCLA point guard, over the weekend. The camp was held at his high school alma mater Crossroads Academy in Santa Monica. As a way of giving back to the community, Baron founded Rising Stars of America , a non-profit organization which is directed by Daryl Roper, head basketball coach , teacher and mentor at Crossroads Academy. The young campers were excited to be tutored by the NBA star, and were excited when they got to have a Q&A session with him. There is definitely a buzz among LA hoops fans with Baron coming home to play for the Clippers this season.
