It’s been a whirlwind week here for baseball as we approach the trade deadline, but in the spirit of keeping the blog fresh, here are some recent scenes from around Fenway Park.
We had a good game yesterday at Fenway Park, as Jon Lester struck out fifteen batters and Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam to lead the Red Sox to a win over the Oakland Athletics.
A nice day for pictures – good light and good action!
It’s seems like the Tampa Bay Rays have replaced the Yankees as the Red Sox’ biggest rivals. Last night was a sure sign that things between the two teams atop the AL East are starting to heat up.
After an incredibly beautiful few innings of sunsets and cloud formations followed by a torrential downpour and subsequent rain delay, the Sox put a rally together to try and tie the game up at 2-2. It seems as though that would have happened in the eighth inning but for a self-admitted blown call by home plate umpire Jerry Meals on a play at the plate.
From my post at third base, it looked like Daniel Nava, who tried to score on a sacrifice fly, was safe. Who knows. Regardless, it was an eventful night for photos despite a low score.
Let’s hope the Sox stay competitive down the stretch. I’m looking forward to shooting this playoff race.
As part of this season’s ongoing 100th anniversary festivities, Fenway Park hosted Bruce Springsteen for two nights of concerts as part of his 2012 “Wrecking Ball Tour” this week.
I was lucky enough to shoot the first show, which was a lot of fun. I’ve shot plenty of performances before, but this was the first concert of this scale and magnitude that I’ve worked at, so I was excited to get some good shots for the portfolio.
I’m not particularly a huge fan of The Boss, but I have to admit that this show was absolutely incredible. He brings a lot of energy, which I definitely enjoyed feeding off of as I shot.
Here are a few that I liked.
I got caught up having to take care of lots of editing and printing during this game, so I didn’t get the chance to shoot much game action or many features, but here’s a few from last night’s happenings at the Park.
This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Don’t fall behind on editing! It’s hard to do sometimes, particularly at the end of a homestand when things pile on top of one another.
And with that, I’m finished shooting after a long, busy ten game homestand. As always, thank you so much for following!
