Photographer Daniel Beltra spent 40 days photographing the aftermath of the BP oil spill. The spill resulted in 4.9 million barrels of oil pumped into the gulf; only 800,000 barrels have been trapped by containment efforts. We still don’t know the full impact of the spill. Beltra’s photos are now on display through April 21 at the G2 Gallery in Venice.

Susan Gottlieb has always considered herself a friend to animals, but her idea of friendship may go beyond the norm. She does not have a mere cat or dog padding around the 1960s house here that she shares with her husband, Dan.
