Bear Hollow

Yonah, a black bear cub, walks through her enclosure at Bear Hollow Wildlife Trail in Memorial Park on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 in Athens, Ga.

I was asked to photograph the zookeeper at our local zoo and he originally was going to allow me into the enclosure but the two cubs were a little too curious and too happy to see me. That would be fine if they were say.... puppies except these two have 3 inch long claws. Who knew that it would end up being the turkey that attacked me?

Georgia Vs Louisana-Lafayette

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray (11) directs blockers as he runs with the ball as the Georgia Bulldogs beat the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns 55-7 at Sanford Stadium on Saturday, September 4, 2010 in Athens, Ga.

I'm posting this way late from when it was originally shot. Their season is now 4 games old and its looking pretty grim for an Orlando/Tampa bowl game.

Anyways, time to step into the way-back machine and wander back 3 weeks....

Redcoat Flags

A flagline member dances as the University of Georgia Redcoat Band practices on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 in Athens, Ga.

I was sent out to do a feature story on the Georgia Redcoat Band and I found this off to the side. The general story was on the band raising money to replace old instruments and to migrate towards having all of their instruments be silver rather than a mix of silver & gold.

Bombtrack at Rye Bar

So after a football game and a 12-hour shift, i went to Rye Bar to say hello to my friends only to find a band setting up lights and a smoke machine. Naturally, I had to get my camera to get the eye candy.

Maximum Busy Muscle at Go Bar

Last week I went to Go Bar to catch the power trio Maximum Busy Muscle, comprised of Jason Roach, bassist Adam Hebert (3rd blog post in a row!) & Mary Joyce on the drums.

Go Bar is the polar opposite of Caledonia lighting wise. More photos & rambling after the jump.

Shitty Candy and the Circus Peanuts at Caledonia (Back-to-School Edition)

My friends in Shitty Candy took to the stage with a smaller lineup, with one guitarist out on maternity, one dancer MIA, and a brand-new bass player. Such an event was not to be missed, even if it happened right after the opening night of high school football.

Athens-Clarke Police Major Mark Sizemore, left and Capt. Clarence Holeman, right, try to console the friend of 20-year-old Chateaubrian L. "Toby" Bailey who was killed after Bailey was accidently shot while playing with a gun in the 130 building of Bethel Midtown Village on Friday, August 27, 2010 in Athens, Ga.

Last Friday, I was back in the office for all of 10 minutes before I was called out to the scene of a fatal shooting. After everything was sorted out, the victim was purportedly (according to Police) was playing with a gun alongside a second individual who was arrested for involuntary manslaughter.
