Caroline's mind jumped to a scene from the 1950s ? her little sister in a poodle skirt. Soon, Caroline and her sister were on the street, her sister wearing Caroline's 50s Halloween costume, and Caroline armed with a camera. What resulted was the photograph that just won the 17-year-old second place at the Los Angeles Music Center's Spotlight Awards for photography.

A local aerial photography firm is doing its part to scour the nation for dwindling water sources. Burbank-based I.K. Curtis Services Inc. employees in 2007 flew into the Mojave Desert with an infrared camera to assess the area’s water demand. The photos are used by the Mojave Water Agency to capture areas of water usage. “The specialized film used for this project picked out vegetation in a very discernible way that allows analysts to determine how much water is being used, and whether that level of water demand is consistent with groundwater supplies and allocations,” company President Rick Harter said.
