The Story So Far

It’s hard to believe that my internship is already over. Eight weeks may seem like a long time, but a few bug bites and a speeding ticket later, here I am saying my goodbyes.

This summer, I traveled to just about every corner of the state – Quartz Mountain, Seminole, Okemah, Miami. I am affectionately known as the “roadtrip guy” in the photo department.

I am grateful that I had this summer as an opportunity to tell the story of summer in Oklahoma.

I picked out my 10 favorite images that I think captured what summer was in Oklahoma this year.

Hopefully this will not be my last blog post for The Oklahoman and NewsOK, but it is for now.

Good luck to my fellow interns in their pursuits of journalism and life.
