A bench in Starke

A bench in Starke

God or no God? Bench or no Bench? Commandments or no Commandments. Lots of debating took place outside the Bradford County courthouse on Saturday after the the American Atheists installed a monument (bench) next to a Ten Commandments monument. The American Atheists were trying to get the Ten Commandments monument taken down, but came to […]

Supreme Decision

Supreme Decision

It can be tough sometimes to watch major news happening somewhere else. The journalist in me wants to be there taking photos. I had that feeling on Wednesday after the Supreme Court struck down DOMA. It’s a pretty historic decision and being in DC for something like that would have been amazing. So I did […]

Van Poyck Execution

Van Poyck Execution

On Wednesday I headed up to the Florida state prison for another execution. William Van Poyck was accused of shooting and killing a prison guard back in the 80’s. The normal group of protesters gathered outside the prison in the area for those opposed to the death penalty. (A bus full of people from Palm Beach […]

Tropical Storm Andrea

Tropical Storm Andrea

It rained… a lot. The first named storm of the 2013 Hurricane season passed over Gainesville on Thursday. Tropical Storm Andrea dumped a ton of rain and a little bit of wind on north-central Florida. I never wish for a storm, but when one comes, I get a little excited to head out and photograph […]

Going Green... Monster

Going Green… Monster

Gainesville had two local teams playing for the state baseball championship on Thursday in Ft. Myers. Just so happened to be played on the field where the Boston Red Sox have spring training. And from what I heard it’s an exact replica. I’ve never been to Boston, but at least I know what Fenway kind […]

Mother Nature is a softball fan

Mother Nature is a softball fan

The plan was to drive to Vero Beach on Friday, shoot some softball games. Sleep. Wake up Saturday and shoot a game, then drive home. But I guess Mother Nature is a softball fan and wanted to celebrate Mother’s day by watching the 6A Florida State Softball game. The Championship game on Saturday made it […]

Who you calling chicken?

Who you calling chicken?

Six teams of two people had five minutes and a bucket of chicken wings… winners got a trophy and bragging rights. (And the good deed of helping out a local charity) The team that won? Two former football players. Each 300+ lbs. It was close though. They had a one-minute sudden death overtime chew-off against […]

Filmed

I love it when I show up to an assignment and the contact says “Hi! Feel free to go wherever you want. Just make yourself at home.” A one-screen movie theatre in High Spring, Fla. is trying to raise money to convert to an all-digital format. Hollywood will only be sending out digital versions of […]

Week in Pictures and Thoughts on Boston

Week in Pictures and Thoughts on Boston

One assignment this past week didn’t stand out enough for it’s own post, so I’m combing some of my favorites. But let me start with some comments about the events in Boston. As a runner, a journalist, a photographer and a human, what happened at the finish line took quite a toll on me. I’ve […]

Vote for Me

On most election nights, a newspaper photographer will be driving across town trying to hit up as many candidate “watch parties” as possible. And crossing their fingers that they don’t miss getting a photo of the winner. It’s stressful, usually doesn’t make for good photos and we always seem to miss the newsroom pizza. That’s […]
