Dudamel Domingo

It's not easy to catch Gustavo Dudamel, the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Plácido  Domingo, general director of the Los Angeles Opera, sitting in the same spot at the same time.

Los Angeles Times photographer Genaro Molina did earlier this year and has a story to tell about how he ended up with two of the world's busiest musical personalities playfully sitting cross-legged in a tiny Music Center hall.

Read about it here on's Frameworks blog. While you're there, click around for our  photographers' stories of shooting a willful Jerry Lewis, finding a way to capture four of The Doors in one photo, and many more.
