Bands and Fans

Oh, high school football. How I've missed you.

Since I don't work the night shift anymore, football really won't be my thing this year (tear). But since its the start of the season they wanted all hands on deck. My job was to shoot the "bands and fans," as our chief photographer put it, to run on A1. So I was off to Calallen.

Another reason they sent me to Calallen was to hit the pregame ceremony naming the newly renovated field after their longtime head coach. After a series of speeches spanning the winning coach's career, I finally got this unstaged shot. Problem was, the ceremony took so long I hadn't shot any bands or fans by this point. Can't have that.

By the way, I love my 50mm, 1.8 lens (above and below). I want to marry it and have little baby 1.8s of varying sizes.
Hopefully I can talk my way into shooting some games here and there this season. Sometime before the playoffs would be nice.

Cry Baby

I don't know why, but I found this crying baby endlessly entertaining today.

It was hard to keep from laughing while I was shooting an assignment at a day care today. So what was this little girl watching from baby jail that was making her cry?

There were no survivors.

Over the weekend I got up early (super early) to make it out to a mini triathlon. It was a short triathlon aimed at kids and first timers. There was biking and running involved, but the bulk of my photos (or at least my favorite ones) came from the pool.

Feria De Las Flores

Why cover the annual Feria De Las Flores "scholarship" pageant when you can hit up the pre-event rehearsal instead? I got a little time backstage as these teenage girls got in there final rehearsal just hours before they went on to compete for the Feria Queen title. It was good times.

I'm not sure why, but I was slightly obsessed with their feet. I wasted invested a lot of time trying to get shots of their shoes. Something about those fancy boots amused me.
