107. Uhm, a reporter, duh, another freelancer reporting in...
Edited on Fri Feb-23-07 03:10 PM by Solon
Of course, I wasn't a photographer, but my notepad was always with me, and I scrounged up my own stories for a local news magazine. But, I've done plenty of stuff related to photography or writing that involved walking up to a "situation" that had nothing to do with me. I'm also working on a book for the history of University City, its an update of a book by my Grandmother, she worked for the city from the 1960s to the 1990s, she penned the Integration legislation in the city. The original book was her own, written in the 1960s, but the city backed her on it, and at this moment, I've been working on the graphic design and photography. I've walked up and down Delmar Loop, even took photographs of the U-City cops, unlike Miami PD, they were photogenic, and SMILED for the camera.

At the time they didn't know what I was working on, but, to their credit, they didn't beat the crap out of me for taking some pictures. By the way, RaginginMiami, I hope you sue the crap out of them, and able to retire, this abuse is inexcusable.
