A woman came into a Pittsburgh hospital with a baby, claiming she had birthed it at her apartment. Doctors quickly realized the baby was not hers. Police were called and she said she had paid $1,000 for the baby. Back at her apartment, a body was found, bound with duct tape.

So we were aiming to write an article on a batman fan with the movie coming out, so a writer at the paper and I headed over to a screening of the film to find some subjects. Not only did we get to see the movie on imax in press seats, we found this character as well-
I prompted him to get on the roof, and he was loving every minute of it. hahaha.
These street shots around the city are from yesterday. When there isn't a lot of assignments, we are prompted to go out and shoot feature photos, which for me means going out and doing what I usually do, and shoot street photos-

Today I shot a very interesting story on a center for the blind. The main focus was on the use of GPS technology to help patients "see" their surroundings. The GPS transmits information such as stores, crosswalks, and streets, and can either transmit them as an audio track or braille. They also have a youth facility that I think could be interesting for a longer feature.

Today I had my first shoot with a local Pittsburgh young marines unit. They were volunteering at a bike and car show honoring marines killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. I really like this first portrait, I think it gets at what I am trying to say without being to obvious about it. I look forward to getting to know these kids and their families in the future.
