features, features…

June 15, 2011

A lot of working as a newspaper photographer is using downtime to drive around town and find features, slices of life that run without a story and show what it is like to live in a given place. Here is a set of pictures from a situation that I ran into last Monday. The pictures didn’t end up being published in the paper, but I still wanted to show some frames on here.

Monica Monett, her husband Matt Reid, their son Jack Reid, 9, and their grandson Xander Doll, 1 1/2, cool off at Sloan's Lake Monday afternoon, June 13, 2011. The family moved to Denver from Lafayette, Calif., earlier this year to be near their daughter and her baby son. "Employment was hard and everything was getting hard," Monett said. "So we just packed everything that fit into our car and moved here. We love it here."
