walking off big.

The Vanden girls basketball team had their best run in school history. In a league dominated by private schools, this public program came within one game of playing the California state championship.

another year, another easter.

Easter came and went this April and every year the festivities offer it's own visual variation to the holiday. This post includes two pictures from an Easter egg hunt and a guy I saw in front of my house on Easter morning doing test runs for the Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race later in the day (I took this picture with my cell phone and it's my new favorite picture on my Instagram feed)!

the 2nd round.

I photographed Shae McCord back in May. The first picture in this set is from the original story on the then 8-year-old. In the late Spring the story was about her rebound after fighting a cancerous brain tumor. Now McCord is 9 and unfortunately the tumor has returned and she is battling a 2nd and faster growing tumor.

My favorite type of weather feature pictures are those involving fog. Last week a good dose of morning fog blanketed Fairfield.
