Yesterday, I was spending some time trying to get a new theme for my blog and the 50 themes that wordpress.com always users who have a free account wasn’t cutting it. So I decided to buy my own hosting which will allow me to do alot more with the blog now.

This was a game that I will be telling my childern 20 years from now. Now the Univesity of Toledo who lost their last 3 games and went into the Big House being a 17 point under dog and defeating the Universit of Michigan. Toledo was the first Mid American Conference team to beat Michigan. Being part of the football team makes it even a cooler experience, I didn’t dress for this game but I did travel with the team to the game. Being on the team gives me opportunites that most other photographers can’t get. I allowed to shoot in the locker room, I am allowed to stand right in with the team and just try different thing that most other photographers don’t get.
Another week has passed and I am back at the grind shooting high school football. I have been getting to the games extremely early to “make” cool feature shots for the newspaper web gallery. I have been extremely happy with what I have been coming out with at the end of the night.
I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! The final two days of the Wood County Fair. They were pretty uneventful. I mostly shot the Livestock Winners circle. That is where the Grand Champion animals come and get their picture take for the special Fair Edition of the newspaper. It was going pretty smoothly until about 5:30 when all everyone started to show up with their animals. There was a line and the people in the line get pretty pissed when things aren’t going smoothly. I mean smoothly by the owner of the animals can’t get their animal in place right or they are getting picky of how the animals is standing. One of the kids was having a hell of a time getting their cow to stand right, so he was poking the cow and this guy walking by yelled out “enough with the animal cruelty man”! I was like wow, I don’t think its going to hurt a big ass cow by giving it a little poke. So the winners circle finally ended, and I was out as soon as it was time, if some one was 1 minute past 7:00 pm they weren’t getting their picture taken! So I headed back to the office to cool down and edit some pictures then It was time to drag back to the fair to shoot some cheerleading competition and a Country Concert, how exciting! Both were fun to shoot but at times during the cheerleading I was like these girls have no life! I don’t feel like typing any more so I am just going to post pictures. Next post is going to be about the life at 370 Wake Place Abingdon, VA 24210!
Back to the grind at the fair, I can say one thing is its getting hard and harder every day to wake up and drag my self back. Today was especially hard because it was new 90 degrees high humidity but there was a slight breeze which didn’t make it to bad. So I took a little bit different approach today, my plan was on using the big puffy clouds in the sky to help make my images a little more interesting. I got a few where that help but nothing I was quite happy with. Back the the drawing board for tomorrow!
