Musician Shooter Jennings At Home in LA

Recently, I photographed musician Shooter Jennings, son of the legendary Waylon Jennings, for a cool story by Chris Richards of The Washington Post . Shooter exuded coolness during the photo session at the Hollywood Hills home he shares with actress Drea De Matteo and their daughter. I laughed at the end when I told him the photos went really great, he said that was the first time he ever heard that! Check out Shooter's rocking new album "Black Ribbons"

Effects Minimal after Tsunami Advisory in LA County

Lifeguards were patrolling Venice Beach as a tsunami advisory for Los Angeles County beaches was in effect today following the massive Chilean earthquake. The National Weather Service reports that a 2.1 foot tsunami surge was measured at the Santa Monica tide guage when the tsunami energy arrived here at 12:24 pm today.
As I was standing on the beach I saw a low flying Southwest plane turn hard inland after taking off from nearby LAX, I could here the engine making strange sounds too. It turns out SWA flight #1644 had had a compressor stall in the number 1 engine and was able to safely land at LAX after a short ten minute flight
