Golden Hour in Sports

This is the time of year where I can get really nice light at some stadiums. Too bad I got kicked off the sideline after about 15 minutes!


30 Day Project: Day 17

Ok, I'm really slacking on this! But here's a fun photo, even if not very good, of the Cap8 Conference Champions. Supposedly the first time in 17 years that Sanderson has won both the regular season and conference tournament titles. Well done boys.


World Football Challenge: Juventus v. Chivas | Carter-Finley Stadium July 28, 2011

A steamy night in Raleigh, but decided not to skip out on a unique event at Carter-Finley Stadium. Chivas vs. Juventus in the "World Football Challenge" exhibition series. After watching many hundreds of club and high school soccer games with mostly other parents on the sidelines and in the bleachers, it was a fun experience with a large group of passionate fans (mostly Chivas). I hope more events of this type land in Raleigh. chivas_juventus_carter_finley002 chivas_juventus_carter_finley001 chivas_juventus_carter_finley007 chivas_juventus_carter_finley009 chivas_juventus_carter_finley008 (Photography notes: All but one of these photos were taken with my very old, yet appreciated, Canon 28-105mm f3.5-4.5 lens. This lens is over 12 years old but still works for me in many situations. I was unsure of the camera/lens limitation at this event, so left my longer zoom at home figuring I'd want some wide shots anyway. The group of four fans was taken using my 50mm f1.4 and as always, I'm pleased with that lens.)
