  • Victory
    The game came down to overtime - bumping up against my deadline - but thankfully the game was over in that first overtime period as the Wild scored the only goal of the game. I jumped over the wall and hurried onto the ice to capture the happy moment as Wenatchee Wild teammates surround their goalie, Chase Perry, after he held the Minnesota Wilderness scoreless, having 48 saves, in a 1-0 in overtime win Saturday night at the Town Toyota Center arena.
  • Tulips
    My first stand-alone hunt day was Monday, looking for an image for Tuesday's newspaper. I had been looking around at tulips and was searching for a nice color contrast between the flowers and the background when I spotted an interesting fence that had slats cut into the shape of one of the flowers. After talking to the homeowner and working the scene by mainly using the fence as a backdrop, I decided to try framing the garden through one of the cutouts. I think it made the image more interesting and I was blessed when a pedestrian walked by in the background.
  • Share riders
    Heres' a photo from my picture hunt on Tuesday. I saw them trying to get on the bike while I was headed the opposite way they were so I doubled back on side streets and got my camera out of the car window just as they were passing through an intersection. It might have been a better image if they were facing me but the emphasis here is on how they shared the bike and not their expressions.
  • Rain
    And finally on Thursday's hunt, I wandered to the baseball games looking for a weather picture and caught Kathy Binner, East Wenatchee, protecting her son, Randy, 7, from the rain while they wait for his first baseball game to start. All in all, I was pretty happy with the week's pictures.

  • Royalty
    On my first day of work this week, I had one of my favorite assignments of the year - photographing the Apple Blossom queen for part of the day. It's a chance to show our readers some behind - the - scenes looks at the queen's life in her duties as queen and in her off times. Roslyn Thompson was comfortable in front of my camera and it didn't take long for her to be able to go about being queen without paying any attention to me. The photographs will publish later this month but here's one interesting photograph of her looking through her little book of etiquette as she and the princesses teach the junior royalty how to eat. I kind of like the finger pointing going on in the background - I thought it was not good to point?
  • Faced with hair
    I was able to squeeze shooting a tennis match while covering the queen story and liked a few of the out of the ordinary photographs from the match. Here's one we used with Eastmont's Lilly Waterhouse's hair whipping her face.
