I couldn’t find much time to go out and shoot on this first day of the second week of this year’s Wimbledon. It seemed like there was an endless amount of desk work, editing, and requests that kept coming in.

I’ve learned by now that that’s just how some days go! I managed to quickly take these few snaps above.

I don’t have much time to write for this post, but it’s been an amazing, incredibly busy, memorable first week here at Wimbledon. Here’s a look at the action I saw around the grounds on Day Six.

Tomorrow is middle Sunday, which means the tennis takes a rest and so do I. Back for another week on Monday!

Things really picked up here on Day Two of the Championships. Matches aside, there were what seemed like endless events, appearances, and happenings around the grounds.

Here are my favorites from the day. By now, I’ve shot several major tennis tournaments, but there are days when I still need to pinch myself. It’s a bit surreal being so close to so many well known people.

Until tomorrow!
