Sox dude

Little late on updating but here is a pic from my first Red Sox game of the season.  It was a long wet night but it felt good to be back at Fenway, well except for the foul balls.   The scary scary foul balls.
Here is a link to the start of the article and a little gallery:

I have started to slowly fill out my archives at and will soon be updating my website so keep an eye out.  Thanks for looking.

Tea Party

So I had some time off today and decided to check out the Tea Party in Providence.  Decent sized crowd.  Anyway I am posting a bunch on my photoshelter account, here is one and this is the link to the full gallery:Providence Tea Party

My favorite softball photo thus far

....that is all.

Okay a couple details.  It is from 2008 it is Wellesley in the red and Needham in the blue.  Bad throw to the really close cutoff at third on a pop out by the Needham batter.  Base runner goes to back to third in attempt to tag up and cleat meets shin.  Notice that the girl is wearing shin pads though, so she was okay.  A lot going on here though.  

One other note.  I have noticed my photos are looking way oversharpened on this blog.  Not sure why.  Working on that.  Thanks for looking.

My Easter

I did a 9-5 shift for the Boston Herald on Easter Sunday and it was a pretty full day. Started with Catholic Easter Mass en espanol, then on to a shooting scene in Dorchester that got a little heated, then a call on the scanner of a three alarm fire in Malden. Got home ate a burrito and then onto a Wilco concert in Providence with Christine (sadly no pics of that).
