July 4 — The busiest day in my photo career
July 4th, traditionally, is intern extravaganza at the Post Register. The photo intern covers every assignment, has every pic in the next days paper. No one else is around except the intern. I covered and self edited for deadline: Fireworks (which ran on the front page) baseball game (action lead, pitcher file photo I had to find in my takes secondary for a seperate story), Independence Parade, Settlers Festival and a Feature Hunt (which all ran in our "West" section as a 6-photo package). I worked from 9:15 a.m until 11:15 p.m., with a short break to eat burgers with the boss and his family.
