Through Our Eyes – Winter Break Post

Just because it was winter break didn’t mean we took a break from making photos.  This post highlights some of the best of what our students took over the last month and a half, and goes to show that we’re already off to a great start for the new semester!

Each Thursday, WKU’s Student Chapter of NPPA brings you some of the best images of the past week taken by our very own classmates. To submit for our weekly posts, you must currently be a WKU Photojournalism student and have taken the images or produced the video within the last week (Tuesday to Tuesday). Send your top 1-5 selections to [email protected] by our Tuesday 6:30pm deadline and our officers and attendees will pick the best of the bunch to showcase at our open meetings every Tuesday at 7pm in Lab 127.

ReindeerHunterLights_JB_02Matt Stuller shows off his love of deer hunting with a homemade display showing various Christmas characters shooting deer with a bow and arrow, a snowman shooting a squirrel with a gun, and Santa’s slay and reindeer crashing into the roof of his home at 14437 East Broad St in Reynoldsburg, Ohio on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2013. Stuller has been hunting since the age of 8. “You see the same thing all the time on houses and this is different,” said Stuller. “Why would Santa shoot one of his reindeers? I don’t know but it’s funny.”  JABIN BOTSFORD

Phipps scored 82 after riding the full 8 seconds. Cowboys are judged on their control and spurring technique, and the horses are judged on their power, speed, and agility. A good score in the bareback riding is in the mid 80’s.  JABIN BOTSFORD
