COLUMBIA – This week Missourian photographers captured images of a pedicab, technicolor bubbles, a historical house and Battle High football.

In this photo by T.J. Thomson, Michael Weinstein, owner of ZOU Cabs, ferries passengers around downtown Aug. 9. Weinstein, a senior at MU, founded the company in mid-June and is very popular with the late-night crowd.

Dos Santos has volunteered at True/False for two years. "It's always been really fun," she said. "It's an integral part of the community in Columbia." 

A vine ascends the front of the historic Sigma Alpha Epsilon house in this photo by J. Evan Arnold. Since its construction, the building has been used as a military academy, a women's dormitory and a fraternity house. Some say it was also the site of a Civil War hospital, but historical documents have never confirmed the claim. The house is up for a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.  

The Muriel Williams Battle High School Spartans leave the field prior to the 2014 High School Football Jamboree on Friday at Rock Bridge High School in this photo by T.J. Thomson. Battle will compete in Class 5 for the first time this season. "We want to prove we belong," Battle head coach Justin Conyers said. "Not just playing Class 5 and Class 6 teams, but being a Class 5 team." 

First Baptist Church Pastor Carol McEntyre, left, lays hands on Nene Peter Rwenyaguza as he kneels next to his wife, Francine Peter, during his ordination service at the church on Saturday in this photo by T.J. Thomson. McEntyre invited all clergy to place their hands on him for a prayer before the general congregation presented him and his wife with flowers as a sign of happiness.
