Best Photos of the Month October 2016


Didn’t really have much as I was limited to what I could do due to surgery. The whole month of October I was limited to 10 pounds. Still I shot a few football games, a breaking news story, and some of my own projects. Enjoy my Photo of the Month of October.

Take Down!!!

My first assignment after surgery was a football game at Lynden High School covering one of the last regular season football games. Lynden defeated Blaine 31 to 23.

On Friday October 14th, we experienced a windstorm that took down power lines causing thousands to go without electricity for up to a day or so. Mostly the wind caused damage to trees, created a white caps in Bellingham Bay, and just was more of a nuisance.

While getting ready to go to the store, I heard on the scanner of a man trapped in his car after a tree and power lines fell on him while he waited for the traffic light to turn green. Ricky Beccaro was not injured and minor damage to his car.

Another game I had to cover was the Meridian-Nooksack Valley battle to decide rankings in the upcoming playoffs. The Meridian Trojans soundly defeated Nooksack Valley Pioneers 47 to 20. The first 5 minutes of the game was fine, then the rain came. And everything was soaked in less than 5 minutes.
