“A day in Quil”
I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon photographing sports at the High School my wife went to. The town of Quilcene is a small town along Highway 101. The entire school district is one small campus housing K-12 so everyone know each other and all the history behind them. The people around town are nice and are starting to recognize me as the guy with the camera. I have done things like photographed Prom and Home Coming dance photos for them but this year I am around doing the thing I love, which is sports. I used to take photos at my brother-in-laws games when he was still in school there, but it has been several years since that time.
The day was beautiful Pacific Northwest spring day, the sun was our and skies were blue. After a dismal month of April, the day was a reminder of why we love living up here. It was a great day to be shooting! I had the chance to photograph the baseball team and the softball team as they each faced off against the Muckleshoot Tribal School in double headers. It sure was a lot of softball and baseball packed into one afternoon.
They all played some good ball that was entertaining to watch. The boys on the baseball team have supplied some great photo opportunities for me and I am grateful to be able to put that stuff in my portfolio. The other cool thing is the very first Hot Shots customer is a mom of one of the boys on the team (THANKS DONNA!). After a long afternoon at the school, there was one more thing to do while I was in town. My nephew also had a tee ball game that evening. You never know what you are gonna get when there are little kids playing ball!
I enjoy supporting the Quilcene community in the ways I can and I hope that the kids who get their photos have fond memories when they see their pictures years from now!

If you ever passing through town, you gotta stop at Twana Road House, that’s where I like to stop and eat!
