March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Photography Day At Santa Anita Race Track


Straying from Monrovia again, this time to Arcadia, our neighbor to the west.

Went to the 2nd Photography Day at Santa Anita Race Track last Friday.  The day is geared toward photographers of all levels and started at Clocker's Corner with morning workouts (pictured above).  That was followed by a tram tour;  breakfast; a couple of workshops with a Canon tech and a Q&A with Tom Abahazy of Benoit Photo, trainers John Shirreffs (Zenyatta) and Jeff Metz and jockey Chantal Sutherland (who also has a role in the upcoming HBO series "Luck" being filmed at the track).

Best of all, you are free the whole day to take photos to your heart's content.
