Is this how Jimmy Olsen started at the "Daily Planet"?
Lens: Pentax 18-250 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma 
Posted By: charliezap, 01-27-2012, 12:54 PM

I was lucky enough to go 2for2 with 2 of my snow scenes that I shot last Saturday around the town.Our local town paper "Saugus Advertiser" is published once a week. If this keeps up maybe with my newly acquired retirement there may be a spot for me at the Daily Planet working for Perry White alongside of Lois Lane and Clark Kent----charliezap

My biggest day at trying to be a photojournalist was WAY back in the late 60's when the Saugus -Lynn area was looking for escaped murderer Albert Disalvo otherwise known as the Boston Strangler.I was lucky enough to be in the area and got a picture of him at the Lynn Ma. police station.I even got the wanted poster when I was sitting in the back of a Saugus cruiser at a roadblock along with some other one of a kind photos.I posted the senario on the forum quite a while ago and for those who want to revist that day click on the link.Next month is the 45th anniversary of that special day.---charliezap
