Today was the last fall 7/8 lax game. Finally. My son has been complaining about being on this team all fall – zero commitment from most of the rest of the team, lackluster performance with no desire to improve. It’s been a chore to get him to the games, but he gives his all, and that’s all I can ask.
Winter workouts start next week, and indoor winter lacrosse is in a couple weeks. Bring it!
Shots from today’s game, Canon 70D, Sigma 70-200/2.8 with a 2X TC.
From the weekend. I have to admit, while I always liked the process of large format, I’m enjoying the overall experience of photography more now than I have in years. This was from a 10 minute sitting, trying lots of different poses, expressions, positions. When my son got tired of the process, we were done. Much easier, lower impact on him, and favorable results.
…and she has her mother’s eyes. Gonna be trouble. Canon 70D, 18-135 STM.
Was sick today (and yesterday). Maddie had commented that this head o’ garlic looked neat, so I set up to shoot it today. 70D, Sigma 105 EX macro lens.
Was dressed up for work today; decided to try to shoot s selfie with the 70D and Canon Remote app. My kids are *so* much better at posing than I am…
Took the 70D and long Sigma lens to softball tonight. Maddie caught a great game. Coaching sucked, though, and I’m trying hard not to dwell on the issue, or I’ll burn a bridge with the league that will keep her out of the game next spring. I’m proud of her, and disgusted by the behavior of so-called “adults”, into whose trust we’ve placed our children. We need to do better by them.
