One Month

I shot a Daughtry concert downtown at the Dow Event Center, I was out in the crowd during one of the opening acts, Theory of a Deadman, and I got this.

It took a little while but Saginaw finally received some H1N1 vaccinations, this was a very unhappy recipient at one of the clinics they set up in a local middle school.

This was an accident, shooting from my bathroom window, but I liked how it looked like a painting.

I covered Devil's Night, the night before Halloween. I was up all night in case there was any arson, but during the early evening I had to shoot a party they threw for kids at the downtown arena to keep them off the streets. This was at a booth where a weird science guy was doing experiments to entertain them.

City elections

Just a sunset I shot by a corn field near Birch Run, Michigan.

A combine harvesting soy beans under a full moon near Oakley, Michigan.

C.P.R. training at a local middle school.

The paper wanted to do a story on the negative impact the term "swine flu" had on the pork industry and they wanted to tie it in with a local hog farmer, so I tracked down this guy in the southern part of the county who got hit pretty hard when the pork market took a nose dive about a year ago. These first two are a couple of out takes, the last one, ran in the slideshow online, he's pouring milk out to bottle feed a calf, he also raises cattle, and his dog Roscoe is in the foreground.

A Reese High School football player on the field after their season ending loss to St. Charles.

Just my bathroom window one morning.

Senior Latin students eating dinner at a banquet they hold every year for all of the Latin students at Heritage High School.

Latin students backstage, some waiting to perform, some just watching the skits at the Latin banquet.

Just a plant on the side of the road, lit up by my head lights.

A dancer practicing her routine for a Christmas production at the Temple Theatre in downtown Saginaw.

Some of the Midland High School marching band drummers performing at the football team's final playoff game.

This woman was involved in a pretty bad accident that was caused by a guy chasing another vehicle and trying to run them off the road.

This is a Swan Valley High School lineman that we did a story on who has Cystic Fibrosis, a chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, but still manages to hold a starting position as the left guard on the varsity team.


Another month down here in Saginaw, with just one more to go. Halloween came and went, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Fall is still holding on here. I haven't seen much cold weather yet, I'm hoping for some snow in the near future. Playoffs for fall sports teams in the area are officially over, I'll be starting basketball and wrestling coverage this week. Here are some of my favorite images from the past month or so.
