Independence Day

Last week mostly consisted of two major things: Making progress on my digital Disney guide, and doing coverage of the town’s Independence Day celebrations.

The Disney guide is going very well. I’ve been writing all about the must-dos at Walt Disney World and creating graphics to decorate the guide with. It should be finished by the end of the internship, and it will include some new photos from a trip I’ll be taking the first week of August. I’ll be at Disney with some friends and while I’m there I’m going to take photos of all the new things to do including Toy Story Land for my guide.

There was a lot going on in Annapolis last week for Independence Day. Being a historically significant town, it’s appropriate to celebrate the holiday here.

On Wednesday, The Washington Capitals came to town with the Stanley Cup, allowing folks to touch it and takeĀ  selfies with it. They arrived by boat to the town’s dock and I was allowed access to the press-only area to get some exclusive photos, and I got to touch the cup! This win, being the team’s first, is a very big deal.

On Thursday, I took photos of the Annapolis 4th of July Parade. It featured political candidates, patriotic instrumentalists and performers, law enforcement, some neat floats and vehicles, and much more. For me, the biggest highlight was witnessing the survivors of the Capital Gazette and friends from other press, representing the importance of freedom of press and how we are #AnnapolisStrong.

One thought on “Independence Day”

  1. Sounds like you are enjoying your time as a member of the press. Have you been involved with our journalism program at Stetson before this? If not, you may want to consider a class or inquire about working with Hatter Network.

    I should have written this earlier, but save different versions of your Disney guide as you make major changes. It will be good for you to be able to show the evolution of your design, and you can’t do that without having the various versions.
