This was an extremely busy weekend for me. Lets start with Friday. I hung out most of the day watching football then around 1:00 pm I head to the football stadium to get ready for the battle of I-75. The battle of I-75 is a college rivalry game between the University of Toledo and the Bowling Green Falcons. Just 25 miles separate the two schools.

After getting a….. well another L to the loss column I headed to eat with the family at Cracker Barrel. We got there as soon as I ordered I drove home showered fast gathered all of my gear and head back to the restaurant. It was perfect time as the food was just arriving. I hurried at my french toast then got in the car and headed to Eastwood High School to cover Bowling Green High School and Eastwood girls basketball game. I got there right at the start of the 3rd period. I didn’t have time for feature photos and got right to work shooting action shots. Being a girls game it was extremely sloppy with loose balls left and right. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Went back to to watch some college football and edit some more photos. I then headed to a city wide Christmas tree lighting ceremony. It was suppose to start a 6 pm but they decided it would be a good idea to light the tree at 8 pm I wasn’t very happy because I had to get to the hockey game at 7 pm. I got a few feature photos and enough for a good web gallery.

I drove to the hockey game it has just started I was kind of hoping to get some feature stuff but just ran out of time. My deadline wasn’t as tight because we don’t run a Sunday Paper.

I got some standard photos for the paper and that is about all I got. There was a bunch of pushing and shoving going on nothing great but shows how the game worked out in the end.

Finally we are to Sunday suppose to be a day of rest not for me, back to work. I had to shoot Bowling High School hockey game those are really laid back because there isn’t alot of people there and I can go inside the benches and shoot to get some cool features. I only got three photos I really liked.
