After displaying a large knife at the STA Plaza, Tedzo C. Baker was tasered by a Spokane Police officer after a short chase that ended on the 100 block of  N. Wall Street in downtown Spokane, Monday Evening. He was arrested on suspicion of felony assault. Spokane Fire Department paramedics checked him out before placing him in a squad car.

Just as I was leaving work, a call came over the scanner of a police officer chasing a man armed with a knife just a few blocks from the newspaper. I hoofed it over just in time to see paramedics checking the guy out after he’d been tasered by police.  I like the rainbow of colors mixed with the stark flashlight beam on the subject’s face. I’m not totally sure, but I think the paramedics  were taking the Taser prongs out of his chest.  Nikon D700, Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8

Ambiguity

Waiting for the action to resume at the Spokane Shock arena football game Friday night, I banged off one frame of the back of some spectator’s head. I’m not sure why I took this picture. Maybe it was how the daughter’s hands were wrapped around her father’s bald head that caught my eye. Ambiguous yes, but I like it. At least I think I do.

Ice crystals

November 22nd, 2010 Permalink

It was a chilly Saturday morning and my honey-do list included cleaning up the leaves in my front yard. As I raked, I begin to notice the ice crystals on the sycamore leaves. I dropped the rake and grabbed my Nikon D3s with a 60 mm macro lens from the trunk of my car.. The morning light was coming through the tress, which gave the crystals texture. After a few frames it was back to work. I”m glad I got the raking done. By Monday three-inches of snow had fallen.
