A day in the life of Black Gnat
Black Gnat is a small city near the center of the state, right where the time zones meet. In fact, the time zone line runs right down the middle of the city. We were able to find one house that actually sits on the line, but unfortunately they were not home.
This was the most I've learned since I've been at the Herald Leader. Stephenson shot and did audio, so I really got to take in what it's like, and what it's going to continue to be like. I thoroughly believe that multimedia is the future of photojournalism. I think it will eventually become a required part of the job.
Now while we never really figured out what building that was, we met some great people.
We met several others, like the Gilpins who had lived there for most of their lives. Also, a mechanic who after getting a settlement for his right hand being injured, bought his property where he now works and lives. The man said he literally gave his right hand for the property.
Sorry I couldn't load more pictures, blogger.com is really sucking today.
