Lunch with the Los

A few shots from an unforgettable afternoon at the Los, first, from the garden out front:

Flash fun

My friend Paul drinks green tea at Shishas hookah bar off Babcock. I used the pop-up flash and simply bounced it with my hand, being sure to block the front.

Spurs game with Kin Man Hui

A former Ranger staff now shooting for the SA Express-News, Kin Man Hui offered to bring me along to the Spurs game last Thursday when I-10 rivals the Houston Rockets visited the AT&T Center for the final preseason game.

When I decided to become a photojournalist four years ago while mentoring with the Express-News for a senior project, I dreamed about joining the pros along the baseline of an NBA game. Getting there again with the greater responsibility of an assignment, along with improved abilities and well-earned equipment, remains my goal.

Being a huge Spurs fan, my interest in what I called "newspaper photography" was fueled by watching how close photographers were to the action, providing viewers with images of what I consider the closest level that watching a game can get, without actually being there.

So I parked my car at the Express newsroom, and Kin Man drove over to the AT&T Center. I had no idea about how close to the action, and realizing that my dream job is reality, I was about to get.

I owe enormous thanks to William Luther, who taught me a great deal during my first year, Kin Man and others at the Express-News who helped me get out there.

Kin Man put together a great slideshow on with a few of my pics! Click the photo to view a slideshow of my pics from the night:
