Lynden def. Black Hills in Distrcit 2A Playoff

With the Lynden Lions leading the Black Hills Wolves 17 to 14 at the end of the third quarter, I had to leave as my afternoon deadline for The Bellingham Herald was looming. As Lynden was playing well, I did not want to leave.

The Color Run in Bellingham, Wash.

On Sunday July 21, 2016, my assignment for The Bellingham Herald was to photograph the 2nd annual running of The Color Run. I shot it last year and had a lot of fun as well as learning the limitations of my camera. These were highlighted in my blog post Debut of The Color Run
