Week in Pictures: Childhood play, mushroom hunting and storm cleanup

Midlanders spend time outdoors at work and at play in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: April 17-22, 2012.

Caleb Killham and his younger sisters take advantage of a nice day last week to battle it out in their yard in Humphrey, Neb., using sticks as their swords. Caleb, 6, fighting as a Power Ranger, is locked in a duel with sister Cayley, 3, who used one of their younger brother’s blankets to add to her role as Rapunzel. MATT MILLER/THE WORLD-HERALD

About Matt Miller

I’ve been shooting Cornhuskers, cowboys and common folks at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2002.

Shooting photos for the World-Herald offers several challenges: the repetition of sporting events, handling my own feelings at emotional events like shootings and funerals, and handling the wide range of weather we cover in the Great Plains. I’d be happy to share more, but you’ll have to buy me a drink, first. You can see a larger selection of my work at my website.
