Hope ya'll didn't get taco neck looking at those last two…

Moving on. Last year , I go see the Chicago Cubs play the Florida Marlins when they come down here, and we had jawsome seats Anyway, my father likes to get the game three hours before it starts to attempt to obtain autographs from the players; sometimes they oblige, sometimes not. This day, I happened to see this fella walking around with this huge rig and it intrigued me.

More interestingly, I have come to realize this guy is actually a somewhat famous local photographer who shoots for all the major sports in this market. I don't know his name and don't care enough to dig into it. I did though recently see him on national Television when another local sports team who plays at the same stadium was playing there and he was right there on the sideline shooting the action. The gentleman he is chatting with in this photos is Alan Trammell,one of the bench coaches for the Chicago Cubs. Cheers!

Neat shot Mike. Cristina's comment about Mr Magoo is spot on. No wonder he needs such a big lens - can't see a thing with out it.

these socks make me jealous and may be there is a connection between little men and long lenses :-))

So the moral of this tale is that to become a success you need beige socks and comfortable shoes... I knew I was going wrong somewhere. By the way, is this rounders you are talking about? :-)
