I took a little weekend excursion to Astoria, OR last week and while driving around the quaint hillside overlooking the Columbia River, I noticed a family in their yard.  Behind them?  A trampoline.  I could see that trampoline had a quite a nice view and I thought, “Any kid who jumps on that must feel like they are flying over Oregon.”  Then I pictured it.  I dove by a couple more times because I just never like to bother people unless I think it’s going to be worth it. It’s sort of like life, you might picture something so perfectly in your head, but then reality hits and it just ain’t that great.

It turned out to be 3 year old Kayla’s trampoline and the family was more than willing to indulge me.  Kayla couldn’t quite get the height, so her daddy Nick helped out.   I say when in doubt, always go for it.  Sometimes it turns out better in reality.

Had the privilege of shooting Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business Spring Break Immersion trip to Seattle a couple of weeks ago.  There is something about visitors that always make your home city feel new again.  Had a blast tagging along with them while they visited Pike Place Market and rode the Seattle Great Wheel.  Thanks for a great Friday Chicago homies!

Photographed Foster High School during the 2014 WIAA 2A Regionals against Hockinson.  Foster fought until the very end, always trailing just a few points behind.  The players and the “volunteer” cheerleaders showed nothing but heart, but it wasn’t to be after Hockinson prevailed with a final score of 64 to 53.
