  • While vacationing over the 4th of July weekend at my nephew's place in Indiana, a storm rolled in and everyone ran inside for cover. That is, everyone except Sammi, left, and Si, two kittens that desperately wanted in, who managed to crawl up the screen door. Despite being on vacation, I was still armed with my trusty iPhone to capture these two scaredy-cats. This photo was published in the weekly Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

  • Having covered the Elgin area since 1996, I've gotten to know a few people. Whenever I venture into Wing Park, I'm on the lookout for Elgin public works employee Bill Rodriguez. I was glad to see him again when he was prepping a ball diamond for a game, both because I enjoy chatting with him and it also gave me something to shoot on a slow day. The crisp blue sky and the sun lighting the dust as he worked were what caught my attention visually.
