GENERATIONS --- On inauguration day after the Recall election, would it be possible to get into one frame Governor Schwarzenegger, his predecessor Gray Davis, and former governor Pete Wilson? Two of the three are career politicians, who recognize the value of appearances, so I was hopeful. I was stuck on a riser about 175 feet away on the main photo platform with a 400 millimeter lens. I watched and waited as Pete Wilson moved around the stage. When he perched behind Davis, I captured the moment. Sometimes even the best planning benefits from an assist by Lady Luck.
