My Dad's Animals

Last weekend I visited my dad to watch the Super Bowl together, and while I was there I took some pictures of his numerous animals, including his new puppy.

He regularly plays frisbee with his adult dog, and I brought my telephoto lens to take pictures of this. Unfortunately, like a dummy, I left it in my car overnight, and it was so cold when I got it out to shoot the next day that it fogged over and was unusable at the time. Whoops. So I did my best with my wide lens.

Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legends, and Mighty Mongo

Last night I was reminded how challenging, but fun, concert photography can be. I took my camera and went to see Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legends, and Mighty Mongo play at the Hawthorne Theater. They played in the opposite order than how I just listed them, however.

AFL Championship Game

Last Saturday we had our championship game at the Arizona Fall League. The Surprise Saguaros defeated the Mesa Solar Sox 2-0, and I took plenty of photos of the game.

It was a midday game and sometimes overcast and sometimes sunny, so my colors are a bit all over the place at times. Also I’m sometimes bad at editing, so there’s that.

That’s it for photographing baseball this year. I am now back in Oregon and preparing for the winter weather.

2013 Arizona Fall League photos

I am back in Phoenix for another season of the Arizona Fall League, which meant another season of breaking out my camera to take baseball photos.

Without further ado, here are a bunch of photos of baseball players from the past few weeks. No captions really necessary.
