  • I was sent to The Range Grill & Tap on Water St. in Batavia recently for a restaurant review for our Time Out Section. And though I was told not to shoot the front porch for the story since it was still under construction, as I approached the front door, I saw a Perspective picture possibility. I couldn't resist the silhouettes and glowing colors beyond the plastic tarps where garage doors where going to be installed. This picture was published in the Perspective column in the print edition.

  • The giant red, white, and blue flag that always makes an appearance at the Memorial Day and 4th of July parades makes a good, colorful, patriotic picture. Photographing this fan favorite is challenging. Through the years I have shot it from every angle: above, below, closeup and far away. My favorite is in your face, using the stripes to lead you to faces of the proud that are honored to carry our country's symbol in which so much has been won and lost. Elizabeth Griscom Ross, a.k.a. Betsy Ross, would be thrilled. This picture was published in the Perspective column in the print edition.
