Go west, young medical student


2015.08.11

Medical school classes start this week, so before all that madness, I took a smaller, but still adventurous and slightly myopic, trip. On July 17, I set out for Chicago on a road trip through Omaha and Casper, Wyoming, to take a hike in Shoshone National Forest.

This is as high as I hiked. The view felt so surreal (and I was so tired from the walk up to it) that this was a good place for a break.

A harpist, an orchestra conductor, and a bee!


2015.04.30

In a flashback to an entry from four years ago, I took photos of an insect. This time, it was a bee, and because bees buzz, I was only able to get one relatively okay photo that wasn't too motion-blurry. So, there's that.

Tonight (just like the previous entry, this one is really posted on May 5, but I can change dates because I built this website and can control things like that), I'm covering the Republican primary for mayor of Carmel for the Star. It's my first assignment for the paper since March, and it's rather exciting.


More referred business! Andrew Lyon (right) conducted the Columbus (Ind.) Symphony Orchestra on April 26, and the night before, he called me saying his original photographer was unable to cover his concert. I obliged, and thus covered my first orchestra concert since my IDS days.

High school basketball, Boys and Girls Club, and new kite photos!


2015.03.31

Despite what the timestamp above says, this post was really written and uploaded on May 5. I've gotten a bit behind, but no worries. At least these photos got uploaded eventually.

Not shown in these photos: my ecstatic reaction when I got a letter in the mail on March 16 accepting me into the IU School of Medicine. Believe me, I was pleased!

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
