Dumpling, an 8-week-old Dachshund puppy, survived a fire in a trailer home today.

The Moose Lodge caught on fire yesterday. It was abandoned, however, so no one was injured. Firefighters didn’t know what started the fire. The light was spectacular, though I’m not sure how good of a job I did in trying to capture it.

Prior to the fire, I feature hunted.

And I also shot little league.

happy birthday, america

Today I shot pictures of Fred Hina, the former fire chief of the OFD. I’ve been feeling like my photos have been looking too point-and-shoot, so I was really trying to get something different.

ROMPin’ in the park

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on June 26, 2008

One of my assignments yesterday was to head out to Yellow Creek Park where the ROMP festival will be taking place for the next few days. My goal was to capture something different, something more personal that the paper hasn’t ever covered before. Turns out, the M-I had never covered any of the families that come in in RVs and camp out through the festival. So, I found this lovely family and snapped some pictures of them.

Saturday was Owensboro’s International Bar-B-Q Festival, and it was an amazing amount of fun! My hips and legs are still sore from the day’s work, but it was definitely worth it.
