Marching toward the title…

The 9/10 and 10/11 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournaments will be wrapping up this week.  There’s been some GREAT baseball; really close battles, games being decided in the bottom of the 6th, real nail biting stuff!

The Championship games will be Thursday, July 15th at 5:30 for the 9/10’s and 8:00 for the 10/11’s, both on Field 2, Governor’s Field in Carson.  (“if” games to be played the following night “if” necessary)

The 11/12 tournament will go through the weekend with the Championship on Monday July 19th, Field 2.

Photog “fun”…

I’m sure the “moment” meant more to Cat and I than it ever will to anyone else… Here’s two photos, one taken by myself, one taken by Cat… we were standing shooting together tonight… Cat’s background and “style” has been groomed by years of photojournalistic shooting… for what it’s worth, take a close look at these two photos… they really show the difference in our “styles”.  Cat is tuned into the whole scene, the umpire’s face is clearly seen, you can see the play (unfortunately the 3rd baseman didn’t make the play…), you can see the result, the story is told… vs. mine… I’m focused on the kid trying to make the play….  We were reviewing these on the field and were pretty shocked how close the two shots are to each other in timing…  I hadn’t noticed the “focus” difference until I got them home and looked closer at them.  Great stuff!!

I guess you can say that being a “photographer” has as many different “meanings” as there are Photographers!

The tournament continues…

Come on out this weekend and enjoy the All Star Tournaments!!  The 11-12 year olds start up Saturday… maybe your team will make it to the World Series!!

See you out there!!

I’m feeling much better… tired, but feeling better, was able to run for the first time tonight after surgery… for those that have seen me running around the fields before… a lot of ground to cover tomorrow!!

I want to give a big thank you to Cat Allison of Nevada Photo Source for helping me these past few days, I had a great time shooting with you!!  Thank YOU!!

All Star Action, Carson City, NV

Hello all!

Last night started the Nevada District 1 Little League All Star Tournament at Governor’s Field in Carson City, NV.  Come on out to see the great baseball being played; three age levels, four fields, a lot of baseball!!

I’m still on the mend but feeling much better, not 100% yet but close.

Cat Allison of Nevada Photo Source (most of you know her from the Nevada Appeal…) is out helping out for a few nights.  You all know the great work she does… stop by and see what we can create for you!

Here’s a shot from last night’s action.  Be sure to watch our Facebook page (search for instaimage) and follow us on Twitter… you just might find some worthwhile discounts if you catch me in a “giving” mood!  🙂

Speed bump…

Hello everyone!

Had a bit of a speed bump hit us starting Sunday.  After enjoying a nice Father’s Day, breakfast with CCLL at their Pancake Breakfast and going to the Stewart School Indian Festival and enjoying a GREAT rib dinner at home…  I started to feel awful… long story short, just got back from the hospital, I’m now appendix free!  Emergency appendectomy Tuesday night, two nights in the hospital due to the severity and the doctor’s concern…

So… I’m on the mend, hoping to be somewhat back to “normal” come tournament time July 7th… more on that soon!

Good Bye Mr. John Wooden, the world’s a better place because of you!

Friday June 4th the world lost one of the greatest men of all time.  If you’ve never read, heard or known anything about Mr. John Wooden I would highly recommend heading to the bookstore or anywhere you can find a book about him or by him… buy it, it’s worth the money.

Having known who Mr. Wooden was for quite sometime already, I was greatly privileged to hear him speak at an IBM Sales Kick Off meeting that I attended during my time at Big Blue… WOW.  That’s all I can say.  He was a tremendous man; inspirational to the very core of his being and he wanted to share that with everyone.  He will be remembered in a great number of hearts and minds.  Thank you Mr. Wooden for the mark you’ve made on the world.
