While Orange County remains the bailiwick of our sister sheet, the O.C. Weekly, we can't resist posting this link to photographer Jonathan Alcorn's blog, flagged yesterday by L.A.Observed.Alcorn had been shooting indicted hedge-fund manager Danny Pang outside Santa Ana's federal courthouse Wednesday, when Pang announced to photographers that their walking session with him was over.
Alcorn continued to shoot — and got some extreme close-ups of an irate Pang that he hadn't counted on. Pang, who remains at home wearing electronic monitoring jewelry, is accused of violating currency reporting laws.

“For the record,” Alcorn reports, “my camera and lens made it thru fine.”
