nice pictures but really doesn’t capture Hump Day in Mason City. I would hate to think if you were doing Des Moines that the photo essay would. Be on the entertainment. Good technical skills but no story telling at all. Our local Globe Gazette did so much more with great photos and articles in the paper and online. You could learn a few things if you look at this. I know from my 45 years in the media and worked with former Register photographers Bob Nandell at the Globe Gazette some thirty years ago and Warren Taylor at the Times Plain Dealer in Cresco some 40 years ago and one of your coworkers and I worked at the Globe Gazette several years ago.

Ozzie–you are on a link to pictures of the Bret Michaels concert. I’m not sure what you thought you would see here. There are other pictures and other coverage of all aspects of Mason City-Ragbrai covered in other areas of this site.

Annoyed at Ozzie
