Introducing “Dear Northfield”, a Photo/Video Historic View of Our Town

Introducing “Dear Northfield”, a Photo/Video Historic View of Our Town

About six months ago, I came up with an idea based on the Dear Photograph site, which superimposes old photos over current times, with the old photo held up in reference and the hand seen in the final product.  I submitted a photo of myself mowing the yard when I was in 7th grade over that old home now.   The basic idea behind the project is that you take a historical photograph and overlay it on a present day view.  I showed Hayes Scriven of the NHS some of the stills around town that I had started to shoot and he decided to create a video utilizing various historical photos framed over modern day Northfield .  With some artistic direction from Adam Gurno we came up with this.  We hope you enjoy!

Cannon River 2010-2011 Stark Contrasting Images

Following is a gallery of “animated gif” images, which is a mini-program that runs 2 images alternating on top of each other. I’ve tried to take a photo of the Cannon River from the same locations that I shot last year at this time when were having a “century-flood”. We are currently under a drought with very low river levels.

Touch Em All – John Gordon Retires (Audio of his final sign off)

Touch Em All – John Gordon Retires (Audio of his final sign off)

I grew up listening to John Gordon call play-by-play on the radio for my baseball team.  I really started listening in 1987 through this year, which is almost 25 years of broadcasting.  At 162 games a year, not counting extra innings or innings that he sat out, he was in the press box for some 36,450 innings!  WOW!  And I’d bet I listened to half of those.

Now working for KYMN Radio in Northfield, a Minnesota Twins affiliate, I can say worked with John, in a round-about way.

Last night John called an exciting “walk-off” win by the Twins in their last game of the season, keeping them from the undesirable mark of 100 loses.  I hit record on my computer and grabbed his final sign off in the post game, saying goodbye to us for the last time!

Listen to that audio here! (under 2 minutes)
