Wounded Wings and Candid Captures
Woo hoo, Pens win! Went to the Pens-Red Wings game last night as we emerged victorious 4-1. Penalty shot goals, more awesome penalty killing…all around a great game. Although let’s be honest: it’s hard to say this was a REAL rematch when they had 7 guys on the injured list, including Datsyuk and Howard. Doesn’t matter in the win column, if they had the Pittsburgh Pirates playing for them, still counts as win.
It’s really not right to bash the Pirates I guess. I live here though, have watched this 18 year collapse, so I think I’m allowed…I mean 18 straight years of sub .500 ball? Are you kidding me? Oh wait, that’s right. They’re rebuilding. Rebuilding what? The Pyramids? Ancient Rome? A full size Empire State Building with toothpicks? The Pens rebuilt in 4 years.
Speaking of the Pens, the shot above is from the game last night. It’s a shot of Craig Adams taking a shot in warm ups. In case you ask, no, those are not my seats, I just sneak down there for practice. He’s one of my favorite players, vital to the #1 ranked penalty kill the league. Not the most well known, but we never would have won a Cup without him.
On to today’s shot (finally). We’re heading back to New York! This is another one that I took from the Brooklyn Bridge on the last day that we were in New York, Sunday. As you can imagine, there are plenty of other people trying to get pictures at the same time. I thought that I would try to get a shot of one of these photographers. This guy was pretty serious, and he never took his face away from the camera. Took a ton of pictures, never looked at the viewfinder. Not sure what he was shooting, but he had no idea we were even there! Rattled off 5 handheld exposures, and away we went!
I’m liking this blogging everyday type thing…I’ll think I’ll keep up with it! No weekends (well, maybe Sunday, depending on how my Saturday night was), but I think I can do everyday!
