Was cleaning out my Processed folder and ran across this. Apparently I re-sized it but never posted it. I have no idea where it’s from, but the filename says “derby,” so it must be related.

Seen through the arch at The Annex at River South apartment complex, cyclists pedal their way up the cobbled Town street past the Lazarus Government Building during the Pro 123 race downtown on August 1, 2010. The race was a criterium, which had competitors riding laps on the .83 mile course for an hour. The event was won by 41-year-old Kirk Albers from Upper Arlington, with 18-year-old Jonathan Freter, from Columbus, coming in a close second.

Dave Stickler, an arborist with the Columbus Parks and Recreation department, looks up at the last remaining branches of an Ash tree before cutting them loose from the trunk in Livingston Park on July 26, 2010. The tree was removed because it was around 80 percent dead, according to officials.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Williamsport, Pa., to shoot the Little League World Series with two awesome reporters, Mike Wagner and Todd Jones (who, oddly enough, worked at the Kernel in the 80s). They work on the projects desk (a cherished relic in many newsrooms today), and have been working two years on an investigative series about youth sports.

Our goal at the LLWS was as a last-day examination on how just out of control some sports have gotten. With ESPN covering every game (with slow-mo replays), security that rivals many airports (no liquids over 4oz, please) and sponsors handing out top-of-the-line sporting equipment to players, it’s hard to imagine these kids are, well, just kids.

But the whole series will assuredly be stunning and, at times, shocking. I’ll be sure to post up some links when they’re all set to go. And once the LLWS story runs, I’ll start posting some of those photos as well.
