Two of my favorite people got married this past September. As if they weren't stupidly perfect enough, rain throughout the entire wedding day gave way to an incredible double rainbow at sunset (in the mountains) directly after the ceremony. Seriously.
A week or so ago I had a conversation with someone about how lame it was that trick or treaters go out so early now. When I was little, I remember it wasn't officially Halloween until the sun went down. Well, I had never had to cover trick or treating until this past Thursday, and I take it all back. I'm thankful parents take their kids out so early now because it allowed more time to shoot with ambient light, rather than pumping strobe into their eyes.
Saturday, I found myself in Indianapolis shooting state marching band finals for 12 hours. The day itself was long and weird, and covering four bands with playing times spaced so far apart was a little stressful. But I swear, if the world was run by the people that coordinated this event, there would be nothing left to accomplish. Them dudes were efficient.

After a summer resetting my brain, and a tumultuous couple of August weeks, I've finally settled down in Elkhart, Indiana, where I'll spend the rest of the year shooting for The Elkhart Truth.
It's been pretty much non-stop since my first day, which is great because it doesn't leave me a lot of time to psyche myself out about getting back into the rhythm of a daily paper. Of course, there's some rust that comes with shock of a strange new community and a vastly different workflow. But that's starting to wear off now and the area is slowly becoming familiar.
Sports, spot news, a boxer with an Olympic gold medal. Here are some frames from my first couple of weeks here.

It's been baseball season for almost a month now, but heavy rains for most of that time kept the teams off the field. I finally got a chance to get out there and shoot earlier today, but in a peculiar situation.
Over the weekend, the championship game of a tournament got called off because it got too dark. They picked it up earlier this afternoon, with the score tied 5-5 in the 7th inning. It took until the top of the 12th inning to finally score a run, which stood as the game-winner. It was great to get thrust right into action after being away from the sport for so long.
