Every year that I cover the Oklahoma State Fair, the carnival workers want me to take their photograph. This year I decided to do just that. I interviewed some of the workers and put together an audio slideshow with the pictures from the fair.

A New Way Of Looking At Something Old September 26, 2009 For this year’s State Fair I wanted to do a photo project that captured the sights and sounds of all the activities that take place during the ten day event. The thing that I wanted to do was display the package in a little different way than other projects are done. The next thing was ‘how can I do this’.... Read More
Military Funeral September 23, 2009 On Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2009, I covered the funeral for U.S. Army 1st Lt. David Timothy Wright II who was killed Sept. 14th by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. He was only 26 years old. Unfortunately, I have had to cover many of these military funerals over the last few years, and over time I... Read More

32 years and counting… September 19, 2009 Recently I covered the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Boone Pickens Stadium at OSU before the Georgia game. Not one to normally be nostalgic, I none-the-less started thinking back about the 32 years I’ve been covering football at OSU and OU too. Maybe it was wearing the 1970′s denim photo vest that staffer... Read More
The Fair, Football and Rain September 18, 2009 Usually the start of the Oklahoma State Fair brings rain to Oklahoma City. This year the rain showed up a week or so early. I managed to get soaked at the Mustang at Edmond North football game last week. It took about two days to get my equipment dried out properly (even with protective gear) just in time for the...

UFC Fight Night September 18, 2009 Bryan Terry photographed the UFC Fight Night, a mixed martial arts event, in Oklahoma City on Wednesday. I think fights in general can be pretty tough to photograph. I imagine a fence between the photographers and the participants doesn’t make it any easier (although the fence does add to the ambiance of some... Read More
