My ears still hurt from shooting the swim picture. Its from a story about a 63-year-old triathlete who is competing in the senior Olympics this weekend. Every time I get in a pool with a camera my brain tells me that this is a horrible idea. But hopefully something OK came out of it. The second one is kind of a media event set up. A runner from the Chicago marathon was giving his medal to a child with cancer. But after the t.v. guys left, and I really can't stand t.v. people, I stayed around and tried to get something. The last one is from a national guard welcome home ceremony.

So a lot has happened since the last post. A little less then two weeks ago I moved to Springfield Illinois to intern at The State Journal Register till December. The town is pretty interesting, everyone I have met has been really friendly and helpful. I've also never lived downtown before but so far I like it. Waking up and seeing a city out the window is still a little surreal to me but it's very pretty. So far I've shot a lot of high school sports and random little feature assignments. I really can't wait to start working on a story.
