My first day back in Vermont, Shooting for the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. My day started with a portrait of an exemplary local trap shooter, I went to Waterbury to cover a press conference at the Vermont State Police Barracks regarding a taser-related death, and I finished the day with a feature of kids jumping into the Winooski River
