Here are the photo highlights from what proved to be a very long double header for the Boston Red Sox yesterday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Although both games one and two were close, in the end neither of them went the Red Sox way. 

Onto the Oakland Athletics this weekend!

It’s good to be back at Fenway after a few weeks off, particularly during a big series between the Red Sox and the Orioles. I tried to mix it up last night, so I shot from the center field camera well with the 600mm lens that we have here temporarily. I didn’t get much in the way of crazy action, but it’s still refreshing to have a different look.

There are also a few Jimmy Fund photos posted here, as there are lots of ceremonies and recognitions in honor of Jimmy Fund Month at Fenway Park.

Here are a few photos from the end of quite a busy home stand here at Fenway Park. Aside from the Victorino play above, there wasn’t much out of the ordinary that happened yesterday. These are mostly basic stock action photos. 

Time for a few days without baseball to shoot.

Not a ton of action to shoot in this game. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price went the distance, allowing just five hits against the Red Sox over nine innings. 

These are a few of the better ones from the night.

Here’s a few from this year’s Memorial Day ceremonies and action at Fenway Park. We caught a beautiful day for baseball, and the Red Sox pulled through with a solid win.

When you shoot the same event every day, it’s important to constantly challenge yourself to find different ways to make it look interesting. I tried to mix things up a bit yesterday. This game’s “Thing I Learned”: I’m settling in to shooting from the seats more and more as the season goes on. There’s somer really interesting frames to be made. I like the juxtaposition of game action and fan activity. I think I’m going to try to explore that more going forward.
