When first-time felons from Algoa Correctional Center in Jefferson City went on an Outward Bound-type program in the Mark Twain Forest in southern Missouri, reporter Frank Rossi and I hiked along. My feet ended up like this fellow's - painfully blistered.

MU photojournalism senior Charles Luedeke covered the Heartland Chorus from the time they left on a bus from Kansas City to when they appeared in the Rotunda of the State Capital in Jefferson City to the Missouri Theatre evening performance in Columbia. Then he got on the bus to return to Kansas City with the men's chorus.

Sunday mornings usually finds me, my wife, Chris, and Roger Pilkenton at Loren Reid's house. He's 104 years old and, yes, still lives at home. Roger administers communion & brief sermon. Loren is always glad to see Roger because he is "rife with sin". After the "service" Chris and I take Loren out to lunch - Steak n' Shake, IHOP, Culver's. Somewhere to get a sandwich and where he can see people.

Our annual Burns Night supper (eating haggis, bashed neeps & chappit tatties, brussel sprouts, oat cakes, ginger apple fool and of course some usquabae) was wonderful. Here's the motley crew and also Aaron reading an original poem, "The Dirty Davis."

both these "still" images are made from digital video. Low light (here, of the performance by Semaphore, the dance group Annie belongs to at Carleton College) is really a determining factor about the quality of the image. Play the image back on a computer monitor you like and which gives a healthy size - then take a shift+apple+3 picture of the screen and it becomes a png file - then you can open in Photoshop and work on it.
