Archive for July, 2010
From a “walk-n-talk” assignment about the governor’s race.
John Holmes sits outside Valley Radiator Service, an auto repair shop he owns in the town of Lockland, on July 21, 2010.
Andrew Weise, 3, from Westerville, stands front-row as Colin Gawel and the Lonely Bones rock out from under the gazebo at Goodale Park for the first installment of the 2010 Goodale Park Music Series on July 11, 2010. The boy’s brother, Zandar, 5 ,was also at the show. “They sleep to their live album, it’s really amazing,” said the boys’ father, David.
Not too happy with my first assignment, mainly because the “guy sitting in chairs with more chairs behind him” portrait is lame. But I did learn that you can get 50 minutes out of a parking meter (even if it only says 15 when you leave it) if you park on the right street. And at least I lit it.
William Goldsmith has been the Executive and Artistic Director of the Columbus Children’s theater since 1989.
I was shadowing one of the other photographers on my second day while he shot an assignment about run-down houses in the Columbus area and how some areas remain rough, despite the mayor’s efforts to clean them up.
He told me this was the best photo of a code violation he’d ever seen. Whether or not he was lying, it made me feel pretty good.
Elizabeth Meredith, 8, stands in the stairway of her parents’ Richardson Ave., home on July 7, 2010, while loose wires protrude from a nearby hole in the wall. The wires are one of nearly 20 code violations that exist on the property, which renter Aaron Meredith says the landlord has neglected to fix, despite complaints. (Dispatch photo by Ed Matthews)
