We couldn’t run everything that we took for what was one of our photo staff’s biggest Thanksgiving undertakings ever, so here are all of the photos, even the ones that wouldn’t fit into the paper, that we created for this massive project.

We were digging through the Gazette’s photo archives beginning at about six years ago for a project, and as we went through we began to pull visually interesting photos from years past.  This is part 1 of a 3-part series showcasing some of what we found from the archives.

The photo staff at the Texarkana Gazette spent the week covering the annual Four States Fair and Rodeo in Texarkana, Arkansas.  As the fair comes to a close, we look back on the photos from the week, and our favorites can be found in this gallery.

Do-si-do!
Do-si-do!

Evan and I had the unique opportunity to work on a project together last week. Often times we don’t have the resources to put two staffers on a project, but we really enjoy it when we can. A group of square dancers from across the country performed on the steps of the downtown post office [...]

Bear Creek Fires
Bear Creek Fires

I’m sure most of you know at this point about the fires near Linden and Jefferson, Texas. It’s been a trying time for the firefighters and families affected by the ravaging flames in the past week and a half. At last count around 50,000 acres were consumed and the fire was 80% contained.

“Toddlers and Tiaras”
"Toddlers and Tiaras"

This afternoon our reporter Marie Martin and I went to interview and photograph ”Toddlers and Tiaras” star, 6-year-old Eden Wood. Eden and her mother, Mickie Wood announced recently that she will be taking a break from the pageant circuit to pursue other endeavors. When we walked in, our sister magazine was already mid-way through their photo [...]

Freedom…
Freedom...

I spent most of yesterday (July 4th) driving around Texarkana looking for people doing fun things to celebrate the holiday. This initially proved rather difficult considering most of the cool stuff (sparklers, bottle rockets, and actual fireworks) usually isn’t done until after dark. My favorite part of the day though was meeting Jack Shannon, the vietnam [...]

Battling the Ball
Battling the Ball

Adam recently found an “old-school” f/2.8, 300mm manual focus lens hidden in our old darkroom. Evan and I both tried to hide our sarcastic glances when Adam took off to a baseball game with the pre-historic lens. I don’t think any of us have really said this, but due to Adam’s success with said lens I think [...]

When the light bulb goes off…
When the light bulb goes off...

We were asked to come up with a photo illustration for a bill signed into law last week by Gov. Rick Perry and filed by Texas State Rep. George Lavender, that could sidestep a 2007 federal energy efficiency law that ends the sale of incandescent bulbs by 2014. Originally Evan’s idea, we decided to shoot [...]

Dichotomy
Dichotomy

I have passed this tree on my way to Nashville, Ark., many times and often tell myself I should turn around and take a picture. Usually I just keep driving, convincing myself that stopping will put me behind schedule. But today I decided it was time to make something happen. Thankfully the clouds were amazing [...]

A day of animals…
A day of animals...

On June 8th, I had a busy day full of animals. Later that afternoon our reporter Aaron Brand and I went to Logoly State Park near Magnolia, Ark. I have always been a nature lover myself, and enjoy the opportunity to get out and photograph it when possible. Here are some of the animal shots from [...]
