Steph takes a Step!

Originally uploaded by Eagle Shooter
I knew this day coming, but when it gets here, you always think it is not real. Stephanie took her first big steps today and she kept going for 10 - 12 steps at a time. She is growing up so fast. It is just a matter of time before she is all over the house! (wait, she already was, just on her knees).
I will always remember when she took her first steps as it was Halloween, hince the costume.

Action in the net

Have you been to a volleyball match lately? If not, you may have missed something. The rules have changed. Now, they don't just play to 15 in a game, they play to 25 and every point counts. They tried to make the matches move along, well now they move a little too fast. If you have to pay, I don't have to, you pay 4 or 5 dollars to sit and watch the action for about an hour. Then, your done, the day is clear and you have to find something else to do.
I understand that they are trying to move things along, but that is crazy. Now this past week, I was glad the games moved at a fast pace. It was the hottest gym I think I had ever been to. Just sitting on the bleachers, my shirt was wet. So I guess sometimes things work out. Go out and enjoy a match, just be sure to have other things planned for the evening!

Football is rolling again!

Looking at the photo shown, you would think I was pulling for the defense in this shot. Well, I work at the offensive school. Still don't know? I was pulling for neither. I was pulling for the best shot possible and I got it. The ball came out and there was a scramble involved to regain the ball but all in all the EB offense got the ball back with additional yardage.
I love what I do. I love teaching young adults during the day and shooting what they do best at night. It may seem to get old, but I do not think of it that way. It gets me out of the house and off the computer. I know, I still have to use the computer to process the images, that is just a side point. Most of the time in what free time I have, I am found sitting at the computer or playing with my kids.
Photography is where I can forget my troubles and think about the shot. Football is the best, but as I tried to sit out a season about 8 years ago, I found that sitting in the stands is for the birds, I like being on the sidelines, smelling the sweat and getting a feel for the game from where most have never stood!
