British Soccer at it's best. Little kids kicking balls around and getting grass stains. The brits were pretty cool too. Good times!

So we've become buddies with a paper down South so we've been trading images. Here's one I took at our Minor League home opener for them. Somewhat typical I know but I liked how the background worked out. The one thing I did have issues with is that our stadium added tons of box seats to the stands making it so that there are no places for photogs to shoot from now. I received less grief shooting from the dugout.
Figured I'd work with these in B&W. The hard light actually worked for me on this assignment. I'll admit the video was a bit weak but I felt the images came out alright. The bloke in charge was an old skater dude that was a walking commercial, nonetheless he was way cool and easy to work with. Also, the kids were real champs.
A rabbi from FL came up and restored the 100 year Torah at the Jewish Congregation here in Ogden. It was really exciting to be so close to a document that I would never have seen had I not been a photojournalist. Learning what it takes to be a scribe and a restorer was really interesting. Also it was cool to meet the Des News new intern Jeff. Sholem!
Watermelon Derby. 3rd Annual at that. I had my doubts when I first got there but since I didn't have to rock a video on it my stress level was extremely low so I kicked back with a slice of pie and waited for the moments to happen. The whole event and festival is general was a lot of fun and made me wish for a second I had a real girlfriend to share it with instead of my trusty Canons. lol. Regardless lots of fun moments happened and the watermelon wasn't bad either I'm told.
