Christmas train disaster

"Something went very wrong Thursday morning when a Simpson Lumber train hauled a log loader through downtown Shelton."
Article in the Olympian

If only I had not slept in.. sigh, this happened just blocks from my house and the media from Seattle showed up for it.  The noise and my power going woke me up.  King 5 news came and offered to give me "credit" for my photos if I posted them to their website.  I thanked them politely and took their card.

In spite of getting exclusive pictures of a grandma trapped in her car I did not manage to sell any.  Maybe if I had been quicker I could have sold them, It feels like an opportunity missed.  But who knows, maybe someday I'll be able to sell some of these.  My power and internet and phone line went down during this time.

Tony Overman  full time staff photographer for the Olympian came to town today

Maybe my favorite of the lot
