I snapped this shot as a possible cover for a special section for the Patterson, Ca paper. This shot is the wrong shape for the section but I love the lines, the feeling of movement and receding shapes from the palm trees. That and it has a sweet looking Model T car.
Sometimes you just have to smile on assignment. I was assigned to take some pictures for a tax filing season story and turned my camera on the woman trying to get customers for Liberty Tax Service. Since mid-January someone stands on the sidewalk of 11th Street near Lincoln Boulevard trying to drum up some tax return business. On the day I went by Carole Angulo dressed as the Statue of Liberty and her dog, Conchita, waved to
cars passing by on 11th Street.
It seems like have a specialty for capturing moments in sporting events that don't go quite as planned. This shot is part of a motor-drive sequence of an outfielder's attempt to capture a fly ball to shallow center field. The player just missed the ball on his diving attempt. I don't use autofocus on my camera and this was the only frame that was sharp as I pulled the focus following his run for the ball. Sometimes I just get lucky I guess.
