While waiting for the Upstate Eight conference swim meet at St. Charles East High School to begin last month, one of the Fighting Saints swimmers walked by with a pile of dry towels atop his head. Walking quite a distance and across the boardwalks adjoining multiple pools in the facility, the bundle never dropped from its perch. Images like this are why it's worth it to get to your assignments early. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

Charred cattails from a fall burn line a pond in Aurora in early March. I just loved the contrast between them and the remaining snow on the ground. This was shot with an 80-200mm lens zoomed to around 200. This gave it a compressed look. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

One thing I like to look for is something different, something unusual at events I cover as a photographer for the Daily Herald. When I spotted Round Lake High School cheerleader Becca Bubloni carrying Peter the Panther through the audience I figured it doesn't get anymore bizarre than that. It is a school mascot which was to keep them company and bring them good luck at the Competitive Cheerleading sectionals at Lake Zurich High School.
