Better than baseball.

The clouds were heavy and grey as I was photographing a non-conference ball game in Pittsfield Friday. I usually carry the 5D Mark II with a 24-70mm and my 1D Mark II with 300mm but that day I left the 5D in the car should it start raining.

I've been looking for "Bonus" pictures a lot lately, pictures I find unrelated too but adjacent my assignment. There was a foul ball and I scanned the crowd and spotted three kids walking behind the bleachers covered head-to-toe in mud.

I followed them for awhile through the viewfinder until they disappeared over a bank and into a creek bottom. I ran back to the car grabbed the 5D and gave pursuit.

It's been so long since I blogged.
It's not that I haven't been taking pictures I go to work and I shoot, but I lost my drive for a little bit.

These past several months have been long and hard but I have decided to share here a few of the moments I enjoyed most.
The Jacksonville Journal-Courier is turning out to be a wonderful fit for my personality and subject choice. I feel confident I can grow here.

These following posts will be a little bit all over the place as I try to encompass my range of coverage from high school sports to agriculture.

Like a good wine I never enjoy a photograph the day I capture it as much as I do over time. So from hindsight, here's a handful.

I hit the wall.

I feel like I hit the wall.

Professionally and non-professionally I’ve come to a crossroads. I’m at a mental standoff with myself. Personal woes cross with the professional. My heart is heavier these days and my mind clouded.
