How I spent my Friday

Some days are much better than others but for a typical news photographer’s feature hunt there is no better illustration than what I shot yesterday.

All that is missing from a normal day is an assignment to shoot a portrait and a spot news event.

This is what I did for 45 years. And, some of which I continue to do today.

Florida Road Trip

Just returned from a road trip to Florida where we celebrated the life of Tim Adams, my brother-in-law who died too young at 63.

Recently retired after teaching school and coaching for 39 years, Tim was praised and mourned by more than 400 people who attended services at the First Baptist church in Gainesville.
