  • spit 2
    There were some minor reactions to success or failure but when Phil Hodge spit one past the measuring tape, he exploded in happiness. It was a blessing that the official measurer was looking for the pit under the scorer's table in the background.
  • spit 3
    I'm always looking for detail photographs that help tell the story and noticed this sign early on. When Adair Gust's first attempt didn't make it past the starting line I was able to get the pit in the photograph too.
  • fireworks 1
    Usually covering fireworks on the fourth is pretty easy - just show up at the park and take a bunch of pictures of people having fun and watching the show. But this year, the focus was more on what would happen in the residences. I staked out a spot where I could shoot down a residential street, over Okanogan Avenue, where I had seen aerials going off and waited for this picture. I like the power lines in the photograph but wished the timing would have worked out to get a car traveling on the street near the explosion.
  • fireworks 2
    I finished the day off after finding a neighborhood in East Wenatchee where residents gathered their fireworks together and had a big show on the street. I tried to show a bunch of the spent fountains in the foreground and was fortunate that an illegal aerial shot off from another neighborhood in the background.
