  • Spit 1
    I was looking forward to the potential for fun photographs at the first annual cherry pit spitting contest at Pybus Public Market to start my Fourth of July work day. But knowing there are some locations in the market that are very poorly lit, I was also a bit concerned. Lighting can make or break even the best photographic event. When I arrived though I knew I could get something good as the organizers had set it up in an area lit by large windows. It was then just a matter of timing to get the pit coming out of the mouth. I had many choices during my editing back at the office and picked this one of Molly Akers, Bellevue, mainly because of the bounce in her hair.
  • 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.
