Looking back: Haines Shoe House returns to the past
Looking back: Haines Shoe House returns to the past

I’ve spent the past several weeks working on two different projects, which means I’ve had fewer daily assignments, which means I have less to post in my weekly reviews on this blog. But I did get to swing by the Haines Shoe House and check out what the new owners are up to. It had […]

Looking back: Spot news shift
Looking back: Spot news shift

It always seems that when I’m assigned to the early/day shift (which isn’t often), things happen.

The two incidents happened in the same rural municipality but occurred with just enough time in-between […]

Looking back: Friday night dance
Looking back: Friday night dance

Last week, I was assigned to photograph Regal Dance Clubs’ weekly group dance and lesson. I love to dance — in fact, Jeff and I used to take lessons there — so it was completely familiar territory. The challenge was to come out with at least five different photos of the same 20 people dancing. […]
