I photographed Chaminade’s Jayson Tatum, a top high school player in the nation and Duke recruit, in February. There was great lighting in the Lindenwood University arena, which made for great photos.
I had the opportunity to photograph the Class 5 District 3 championship a few weeks ago in Troy, Mo. Here are a few photos:
Welcome to my new blog. It’s been several years since I’ve actively maintained a blog, so we’ll see how this goes. There’s no real theme, besides some photography and software development posts, but hopefully it’ll become more focused as content goes up.
I’m going to bring a few posts over from my old blog and repost them here. I’ll also start with a few photography posts and updates. This may also become a home for updates on our wedding plans. We’ll see where it goes.
Thanks for reading!
Awhile back, a friend of mine, Nate Papes, ran across Scott Walker, director of enterprise and investigation at Alabama Media Group, who had retrofitted a newspaper machine to display newspaper front pages digitally. (Update March 13, 2016: This link is dead; it appears Walker removed the post.) We talked about creating our own, but never followed through.
My weekend project is to dive into Django. I get the concept and have been it in action, but I’ve never actually worked with it directly. It’ll be part of my jail project, which is going very well. (An amazing number of people go to jail daily in Greene County, Mo.)
My goal is a “dashboard” of jail statistics of frequent flyers, latest people booked along with some fun, and interesting, statistics of eye color, hair color, etc.
For example, right now in my 1,798-row data set there are:
- 824 brown eyes
- 499 blue eyes
- 278 hazel eyes
- 179 green eyes
- 5 black eyes
- 3 grey eye
- 10 unknown or not specified eye color
Useful? Probably not in reporting, but certainly interesting for readers.
