In the same weekend, i covered a scholarship pageant and a doll tea party. I felt suddenly tomboyish after being enveloped in lacquer and excited squeals and coiffed hair.

oh city council elections.

rediscovered from an old assignment --
Suzy Bercaw smokes a cigarette while standing by her husband Greg as they watch members from Lima Local 357 Council of Carpenters build a wheelchair ramp leading into their house in Lima. Greg, a carpenter and member of the union for more than eight years, suffered a pulmonary embolism earlier this year and has been in a wheelchair for about a month. The couple has four young children. When the union found out about the family's situation, they offered to build a ramp at their house and to give him an electric wheelchair. "This is awesome," Greg said. "It's the brotherhood."

yeah, i tried it.

the cross country pan. it wasn't totally successful. and it was also a disturbing wakeup call on how dirty my sensor be. my failures, however, didn't weigh on me as heavily as it did on some of the kids running for their shot at state.

life : work

my internship has been extended till may. i'm bracing myself to witness four seasons. a combination of financial and professional hang ups have made it so that staying in Lima and shooting for a living is quite the opportunity. luckily, matt has also agreed to stay. it gets lonely here in the island that is lima. all we have is work, great lakes beer and each other to pick on.
