Photos in the Freep!

Last month I drove up north to shoot an assignment that I couldn't talk about... until now! The Detriot Free Press broke a feature story today that is very good and very touching. I was honored to take some photos for it, but the images are nothing compared to the beautiful story of hero-ism and tragedy that Freep writer Jeff Seidel wrote.

I highly suggest picking up a copy of today's paper, or at least checking it out here:

Lake Erie Sand Monster

Whenever I bring my friends to Lake Erie, I always try to convince them that it is not as dirty, gross, polluted, diseased, disgusting, etc. as they think it is. This time; however, I had to agree that going in the water or eating anything out of it was probably not the best option.

How does a raccoon just die on the beach like this? It still has its eyes open!

What I've Been Up To

Well, it's been one week and two days since graduation. Since then, I've moved back home with the parents. I've had two sort-of job offers, I've been working in radio ministry at Yes FM in Toledo, Ohio, and I've roadtripped to Tampa to move my friend Lynzi home from college.

What's next? Something big either in Michigan or California. It's decision time, 2009.

On the roadtrip, we stopped by Bob Evan's farms in Rio Grande, Ohio.

We also met a man with pet squirrels outside of a restaurant in King's Mountain, NC.


There were clouds over every state except Ohio on my flight back home from Tampa.







Graduation.

4 years. No loans. 4.0 this semester. Magna Cum Laude. Honors Program. Bachelor of Arts in journalism and a broadcasting minor.

I win. :)
