Football Is Finally Here!!!

MJ and I had a great trip to Michigan this weekend to visit our families.  It was a wonderful trip and we enjoyed visiting with everyone.  We drove back tonight for two reasons.

1.     To get some things done around our house on Monday before the holiday weekend is complete

2.     So I could get ready for the Monday night University of Pittsburgh vs. Florida State University football game.

I have a list of games I plan to photograph this year, both college and NFL.  This is the first assignment on the list.  Pitt is launching its entry into the ACC by opening their season on national television (ESPN) against a great FSU football team.  I doubt Pitt can win this, but I’ll cheer for them away.  Regardless of the outcome, I plan to have a great time shooting the game from the sideline.  My goals for shooting the game:

1.     Don’t get hurt….I’ll be dodging players and the football

2.     Have fun!!

3.     Get some great photos

Preparing for tomorrow’s game, I looked back through some of the football pictures I took last season.  I came across this photo and thought I would share it with you.  This is of Cameron Saddler, who was a senior wide receiver for Pitt last year (his home town is Monroeville PA…which is right outside Pittsburgh).  I took this picture of him during the 2012 Pitt vs. Temple game last season.  Look for me as I run for my life tomorrow night.
