End of Fall Lacrosse…





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.

3) You should resolve to be awesome for the rest of your life. Right now. Do it.

Game Face

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.
