Memorial Day

I worked on Memorial Day, took a lot of parade photos. This is my favorite of today.
Jason Turner and his two-year-old son Maty Turner were watching the parade in downtown Torrington,CT. The boy had no interest in the parade, he kept turning around and looking at all the toys in the closed toy store behind.

It's two days away from June 1. In China, June 1 is a holiday for all the kids, we call it Children's Day. I remember when I was a kid, Dad always gave me ¥5 to buy toys and I always get a different military ship or jet.

Happy Children's Day!
even if you are not a child any more

another memorial assignment

I got another memorial assignment to shoot in state capitol in Hartford.
This memorial is about the seven Connecticut soldiers who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past year.

Ling Noonan(center), her son got killed by another soldier in the dorm in Iraq last October.

pre-memorial day

I just figured out my schedule of the rest of the week and next week. I will have to work on Memorial Day which means I will probably get paid extra.

Today, the third day of internship. I had three assignments, the last two are Waterbury Police Dept& Fire memorial ceremony and Veterans memorial dinner. And I will have another bigger memorial event in Hartford tomorrow afternoon.

Here are a few photos from the police memorials, it's a standalone photo so only the last one will run on the paper.

NVL track&field championship

This is the second day of my summer internship in Waterbury, CT.
I got three assignments, the third one is a high school track and field game which was my favorite.

it took me a couple of minutes to get used to the strange environment. Because I am so used to the New Mexico sunlight, blue sky, it is cloudy here. My friend Bob told me it has been rainy for the past three weeks.

so far, the only two things I don't like here: the highway is really really confusing; there is the a dress code for working at the newspaper

next adventure

I am leaving for my summer photo/multimedia internship with the Republican-American, a newspaper in Waterbury, CT next Thursday.
2,100 miles of driving from Albuquerque, I am still thinking about to make it two days or three.

wish me good luck!
