So I posted a square version of this photo on Instagram the other day and I readily and with no apologies admit that I spend a good five minutes trying to come up with a clever caption that also had no air of mockery to it. This was a fine chip out of the sand and the only thing that made it remotely funny was the placement of the ball when there is so little depth of field. I tried things about "hitting it on the nose" or about "eyes on the ball." They all stunk. Turns out I'm not as clever as I like to think. So here's my new caption: Glenbard East's Cassie Payne chips out of the sand and for 1/4000th of a second the ball is in front of her nose during the Upstate 8 conference girls golf tournament Monday at St. Andrews Golf & Country Club in West Chicago. Kind of wordy, but true. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the printe editio of the Daily Herald.

Lee Bialek, of Remax of Lake Zurich drinks water as he stands in front of the company float during Lake Zurich's Alpine Fest parade along Route 22 in downtown Lake Zurich. More than 50 entries participated in the 75th annual parade that is a culmination of the festival.It was a hot day and you could see those happy eyes from blocks away. I liked the combination of the smiling face looking over the shoulder of the thirsty man. Patience is important in getting the right shot because I had to wait several minutes for the guy to get in the right position and to take the drink of water. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
