The need for Baker.

Right before the quarter started the paper was in need of Mt. Baker photos, which was a great excuse for me to go skiing. I had never taken my camera up on the mountain before because I was always scared I would break it on my handfuls of crashes. It ended up not being a problem. I learned quickly that I needed to find something not covered in snow to give the skiers and snowboarders a sense of place in the whiteness. Here are a couple shots I took.

I wish I had the time to make it back up there soon.

Long bus ride with amusing football players.

I recently went down to Olympia to photograph a rally some Western alumni, football players and others were having in hopes to grow awareness of the cut of the program and to introduce a couple bills they were trying to get passed.

I forgot to change the settings on my camera from when I shot a basketball game. This is what happens when you leave your camera on the fluorescent light setting and take photos outside:

Even though we don't see faces in this photo, I liked how the signs and the legislative building kind of told the story. I played around with this a lot while I was there.

I saw this guy standing kind of by himself and thought it was interesting.

On this trip, I learned that football players are the blondes of the male species. It was very entertaining.
