Meera Solanki and Sravani Sagireddy hold their final pose during Diwali Night at Hutchins Street Square on Oct. 27. (Camera: Nikon D700. Lens: Nikkor 70-200mm @ 102mm. Exposure: 1/250th sec. @ f/2.8. ISO: 4000)

Photographer’s note: This was the second annual Diwali Night I had photographed. This year’s event started with a performance by little children. Following the children, the emcees came out and made a few jokes. Two younger girls then came onto stage to perform a Bharatnatyam dance. I took a couple pictures during their dance and snapped one of their final pose. I jotted down some information from the program before I hurried back to the office to make deadline, not sure if my final picture was up to par yet. Back at the office, I quickly edited my pictures from earlier in the day, saving the dance for last. When I got to it, I knew that it would make the page editors happy. I submitted it and went home, eager to see if it made it into print the next day.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
