Since my posts now come at random intervals instead of weekly, this will be the first Shorthorn Shots post. Being the Photo Editor takes a lot of time away from shooting but it does help me focus on quality when I do get the opportunity to pick up a camera. Last week, we had Tiger of Bengal, an experimental band based out of D-FW, come in and perform in the middle of the newsroom. It was definitely an interesting and unique way to experience this local band. Then we have some shots from one of the most exciting games i've seen played by the current mens basketball team. They were behind 15 points then came back to win in overtime by one with record breaking crowd of over 1,000 going wild. Enjoy.
