The daily grind

My six-month internship is almost up, and as I began to learn this new city, I will again be leaving soon to a new city. 

Here are some of the photos from daily assignments I’ve covered over the last few months since my last post in September.

JaxCitPat - Say that three times fast

Finally got around to rounding up some images from my first two months here in Jackson. I got tossed straight into the fire my first weekend covering NASCAR solo, which was definitely a baptism by fire. It’s been great here, working mostly in Jackson, but a few times a month I work out of Ann Arbor or Detroit. 



Better late than never

After three months in St. Louis, I once again stuffed my car with all my belongings and drove to my next internship in Jackson, Mich. with  the Jackson Citizen Patriot/MLive.com. I will be here for six-months working in the Jackson-Ann Arbor region.  I wanted to use this post to revisit some of my favorite frames while I was in STL and to once again thank the incredible staff I had the privilege of working with.
