My name is Josh. I am in newspaper because I took newspaper all middle school in 7th and 8th grade, photojournalism I with Higs and photojournalism II with Mrs. Woodruff. I have always liked taking pictures, from sports to theater to action. A pic is worth a thousand words. It’s a stop-action a moment of life paused. You can hold a moment of life in one picture from the past. I don’t like doing anything else besides taking photos. I am not a big writer, never have been and most likely never will be. I just have an eye for photos.
