A busy day. I started with an hour at school, uploading my student’s lecture and lab.
then covering Dudley HS drive-thru graduation for the N&R
It’s a strange event…
Then 30 minutes across town for Northwest Guilford’s drive-thru graduation
I had enough time to ride for an hour
before my third freelance assignment for the day
for the Triad Business Journal.
Hide in the woods to turn out images, dinner with my house guests, and pack for a kayak trip finished my day!
11pm – set up for the Milky Way to rise
2:30am – there it is (next to tree) but too much light pollution to get a good image. I couldn’t stay up any longer after a long bike ride and hike for sunset.
Set up four cameras for fireflys
They didn’t come but I got a sunset at least
I have been working on a freelance assignment on local business owners
the story focus on their businesses and Covid-19
Getting ready for a freelance job
Stopped in work for a bit, played with these two!
I got a freelance assignment from the News & Record
UNCG basketball at the Coliseum, I had not shot in there since the ACC tourny in 1999 or 2000 and had not shot basketball for a newspaper in almost 7 years.
I had a blast! Full gallery – https://www.greensboro.com/gallery/sports/photos-uncg-mercer/collection_d0593631-aff8-56c4-89c5-0ad14595dbb2.html
I had a little time before tennis, so I stopped by a local high school to practice shooting basketball, it’s been a few years and I may get some freelance work soon, plus I was working on my basketball lecture for class.
The students from Stoneman Douglas High School joined local students at a Rally for Our Lives in Greensboro, since I had time before tennis and wanted to play with a new gimbal I stopped by.
Of course Trump supporters and/or 2nd amendment had a protest… odd thing was several speakers said they support the 2nd including their family owning guns….
I hate sign photos, but this one I liked….
it has been a while since I tried to cover an event, plus not being allowed “inside the ropes” but I had fun and was also playing with a Sony A7II
This woman put up a good debate with the protesters, it is always interesting to watch the mob mentality against one person.
