15 minutes of practice


Sometimes you have an a couple hours for an assignment. Other times, 15 minutes. The pressure to make images in a limited time frame is sometimes what makes the job so much fun.

Window light stalking


A man, who asked to be unidentified, looks through science and nature books Tuesday afternoon at Alma Area Used Book Sale. The annual sale continues today and Thursday at the First Presbyterian Church, 495 Charles Ave. in Alma. The funds raised from the sale fund scholarships for local non-traditional college students.

Some times you have to wait, wait some more, wait a little longer and then just maybe everything will align.

Jingles and Chandler


Chandler Denton, 12 of Clare, takes a break Friday at the Clare County Fair after walking his quarter horse Jingles who was dehydrated. "She doesn't like the water here," Denton said. Denton, a member of the Giddy Up 4-H Club, had to walk Jingles to keep her from eating dirt and laying down to prevent colic. "There's nothing I'd rather be doing than riding," he said.

Isabella County Fair


We did a feature on rides at the fair. I knew immediately I wanted to do some long exposure(something I've never seen in our paper). I arrive just before dusk and as I set up, the lights go out and the rides suddenly stop. An hour and a half later and a fixed generator I made this.

Sometimes all you can do is wait.
