Governor Elect David Ige speaks on stage, flanked by senior United States Senator Brian Schatz and junior United Sates Senator Mazie Hirono at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii on November 04, 2014 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The midterm elections have come and gone. The political landscape has re-shifted basically back to what it was two years ago. Republicans retook the majority in the Senate. Not in the usual way you;d expect, as Slate’s William Saletan puts it. (He’s quoted at the end of the linked News.Mic article.) That being said, as with years past, Hawaii, the 50th State in the Union, voted in the similar way it typicall does. Blue. Continue reading ›
APAD Founder Melissa Lyttle addresses the crowd at J. Kyle Keener's studio in Philadelphia, PA.
The title of this post just about sums it up pretty well. GeekFest, #GFPhilly, went down in the city of brotherly love this year after a rocking year in Minneapolis. Truth be told, I had NEVER been to one before. I had seen photos shared on facebook, and M and Eve talked about it a couple of times, luckily this year I was fortunate enough to go.
People who know me will tell you, I’m kind of a gear head. I’m crazy about new technology. While the Sony a7 series cameras aren’t technically NEW technology (full frame digital camera) I will say that it definitely fits into the category of affordable full frame digital body. When I finally got back to Hawaii after my extended #travelingkent hiatus on the mainland I returned to Hawaii determined to try one of these cameras out. Thankfully Josh at Hawaii Camera has a couple for rent, and I took the Sony a7R out for a week. Continue reading ›

Heading into August there was quite a buzz around the newsroom. We were moving floors, Leyba had made 30 years with the Post, and Broncos would soon be back in season. I had a blast with my fellow interns this summer, and the staff here were nothing but short of amazing. I’m really going to miss Denver after I go home… Continue reading ›
Stephenie Riegel hugs her goat Blue Spruce while her mother Raejean Riegel prepares to groom him during the opening day of the Colorado State Fair at the State Fairgrounds on Friday, August 22, 2014 in Pueblo, Colorado.
It was somewhat fitting that one of my final assignments of my internship at The Denver Post would be the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo, Colorado. It was one of my first assignments at The Gazette in Colorado Springs, nearly a year earlier. Ken Lyons my editor at The Post, sent me to the Fair looking for an A1 centerpiece photo. No Pressure, he said. Knowing that I had to come back with something well before the deadline and it had to be good, I was slightly stressed since weather was a bit funky, and It was the opening day of the fair, and nothing would really get into gear by the time i needed a photo. Here’s what I came away with Continue reading ›

Wes Welker remains driven to perform at peak level — and raise where that peak is. He is faster at age 33 than he was in college at Texas Tech, and much trimmer.
Thirty-Three isn’t what some would consider young…in the world of professional football. But for Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, age is a motivational tool. Leading up the the Denver Bronco’s training camp, reporter Troy Renck and I went down to Half Hour Power to spend some time with Welker to interview and photograph him going through his workout.

Volunteers have been keeping watch of the eagles nest since before the projected July 4 flight date. Now, 17 days later, volunteer Richard Young keeps his eyes peeled for signs of the young eaglet that just took flight.
COMMERCE CITY — A few weeks ago, I regaled my reader(s) with a story of a young eaglet, poised to take flight on the 4th of July, the birthday of America. BUT, it was a no go. Bernice, as fellow Denver Post intern Rex Santus, has so affectionately named her, just wasn’t up to the task of fledging. She however, thought it’d be appropriate to do it today, without me there to capture her glorious moment. Now she’s gotten camera shy and has taken to hiding. Such is my luck. More photos after the jump. Continue reading ›
