The first two weeks

Here are some pictures from my first two weeks of internship at the Colorado Springs Gazette

This is a story about Amber, a teenager girl has cancer, she made a wish that she could attend the Air Force Academy ball, but due to her body condition, she could not make it. The day I went there was the cadets from AFA decided to go to the hospital to have a mini-ball for Amber. This pictures was taken while Amber was going on her way to the ball. 

Two of my favorite pictures from the Air Force Academy graduation,  the top picture got chosen to be on the A1 of the Gazette.

I had a chance to photography Jono Schwan, a 16-year -old Colorado Springs native, who is the second person that has performed 1080 in history
