Baseball, Baseball and more Baseball….

Over the last few days I’ve photographed a few baseball games. It’s actually one of my favorite sports to photograph. Mainly, because of the love I had playing the game in my early 20’s. Although, I pretty much rode the bench, except for that one time….

Picture it: 1987. I’m at the plate. First at bat ever in organized baseball. Take a called strike. Then take another. Count is zero balls and two strikes. And just before the next pitch, the umpire calls the game due to darkness. And that was that. Never played again. It took me a year to make the team, and finally got a shot and it was gone like that.

Anyhow back to shooting. Here is some video and stills from the past weekend. Slide shows and videos.

Two Days, Two States, Six Assignments….

Friday and Saturday I was in two states and shot six assignments. Sunday seems like payday with all of the clips to share today. One assignment didn’t run yet, but will be published next Sunday.

Here they are. Clips from The Philadelphia Inquirer, Bucks County Courier Times, The Intelligencer and The Burlington County Times.

Danskin Triathlon

For the first time since I started photographing the Danskin Triathlon (formerly the SheRoxTri), the event was postponed due to thunderstorms. As I was exiting the event, I turned to make some images showing the participants and spectators as they walking in the drenching rain.
Two athletes actually wanted to pose as the thunder roared in the background. My camera bag and vest are still not 100% dry. 🙁

Spectators and participants in the Danskin Women's Triathlon exit the event after thunderstorms caused it's cancellation Sunday August 2, 2009 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
