my loyal photo blog readers my mother:
I apologize, I've been slacking on photo updates this week. I'm glad you're still lurking around my blog; it's so nice to see you and welcome back!
January is what we call a painfully slow month in the journalism world. Ad sales are down after the holidays have passed and people like to stay indoors when the mercury in the thermometer drops below zero degrees. Who can blame them? I've been so cold the past couple weeks that I find myself sitting underneath the heat lamp in my apartment, just to get a little light in my life.
As the winter weeks creep on by, we tend to spend our days photographing a blood drive or two, hanging out at the nearest sledding hill, and patiently praying for the first batch of brave ice skaters to test out the local pond.
That, and basketball.
There's always basketball. Within the past 24 hours, I've shot three different basketball assignments. Here's a pic from big-boys basketball and a shot from little-boys basketball. It was a packed house last night when cross-town rivals New Berlin West and New Berlin Eisenhower went head-to-head during a Woodland Conference showdown at Eisenhower High School. Eisenhower ended up winning the game during overtime with a 66-64 victory.
