The Crash Site

8.23.2008 0488.jpg

Down in Green River for another assignment when the phone rings. A plane went down not far away, at the airport north of Moab. All nine passengers and the pilot dead. Raced over to find the scene closed while bodies were removed.

Back to Green River for the original assignment, then a shot of the Bandidos in Moab and, once the bodies were removed, we were finally able to document the scene. Trib reporter Christopher Smart braved a couple of crazy bumpy sandy washes in his 4×4 and we made it in (photo below taken one-handed as we bounced around). Hopefully his vehicle wasn’t too trashed from the trail. Our mileage reimbursement probably won’t cover this kind of abuse.

Maybe it was the rush of getting over there and juggling two other shots, but it wasn’t until I was telling someone about it the next day it hit me. Ten dead.

Moab – Ten people were killed when a 1975 Beechcraft King Air A-100 plane crashed about 2 miles from Canyonlands Field airport. They worked for Southwest Skin and Cancer/Red Canyon Aesthetics & Medical Spa.

First Game Rust – Jordan v Northridge

I can’t blame missing this split-second helmet knockoff on the camera’s autofocus like I usually do. My framing was off by just a bit. Screwy photographs like this are especially common from the first game of the season. After that, the rust clears away and we start to roll.

Sandy – Northridge’s Chris Washington knocks the helmet off Jordan’s Cory Hunt. Jordan’s Bill Vavau (50) looks on. Jordan vs. Northridge high school football, Friday, August 22, 2008, at Jordan.

Finally, Football

It’s an annual event. Football season starts and rescues newspaper photographers from summer. Football for me is a sign that the weather will soon cool down, and that’s good enough.
