Month: October 2009
Here’s a beautiful photograph that was never published. Every fall newspaper photographers are sent out to capture the changing of the season.
I got the call one day, with the reminder that, “It’s got to have people in it!”
I drove up Farmington Canyon after a light dusting of snow and there was not a soul in sight. But there was this beautiful scene as the sun snuck out through the foggy clouds.
I was unaware that another Tribune photographer had also gotten the fall colors assignment. His photo ran in the next day’s paper. Was it because there were no people in mine? No. His shot had no people in it, either.
Last Saturday Chris Detrick and I were down in Provo to photograph the BYU vs. TCU football game. We had been tasked with putting out a video piece on the game. Wanting to do something different we decided to use the wild west theme of our sports page that day, which featured a cartoon of two gunfighters (a cougar and a horny frog) in a showdown. We put together a video mashing up various elements from the sports page (over-the-top headlines and text, the cartoon) as well as our photos from the game. I just checked for it on the Tribune site and noticed that the video isn’t working. Now that I look around, I don’t think it ever even went up.
Not to worry, it got taken a step further and this version is quite ridiculous. Enjoy:
Those infernal refs. Always running in front of me.
BYU gets crushed 38-7 by TCU. Here’s how it went down:
TCU’s Ed Wesley (34) leaps over BYU’s DB Brandon Bradley (5) for a first half touchdown.
TCU’s Joseph Turner (24) lets out a yell after scoring in the first half.
TCU’s Jimmy Young (88) pulls in a touchdown pass ahead of BYU’s DB Brandon Bradley (5).
BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall yells as his team comes off the field.
Max Hall is sacked by TCU’s Cory Grant (57).
Max Hall is sacked by TCU’s D.J. Yendrey (55, front) and TCU’s Wayne Daniels (96).

Couldn’t resist photographing this sign spotted during a tour today of a homeless shelter.

I was too freaked out to ask her name.

Took a shot at the BYU vs. Utah State game tonight. Above is a sequence (Utah State’s Bobby Wagner knocks the ball from BYU’s Spencer Hafoka), and the rest are black and white. I took a lot of ribbing in the press box for converting these to black and white, but the clarity of color in my Canon Mark II cameras at high ISO is more embarrassing than a guy trying to look serious old school by converting his photos to black and white.
