A Coaching Moment

This is part of a series of three images taken during the Black and Gold Game in Bradenton Florida last month.It was great to see the expressions change during this short discussion about a missed catch in right field. It and some other sequences that I have captured have made me think of a potential book or gallery project called “Trips”. It would be an odd size book so maybe better as a gallery installation but I am way ahead of myself. I am still editing my novel and no other book project will happen ahead of “DreamMap”

Black and Gold

Spring comes early in Central Florida. Flowers bloom, temperature rise and trees leaf out. However, the real harbinger of Spring is when the boys start to play baseball.

The Black and Gold game is a seven inning inter squad exhibition game. It was a little confusing because both teams wore the same uniforms. McKechnie Field in Bradenton is a cute little stadium and being so close to the action was thrilling.

Pitchers and Catchers

Although Spring is still a month away, the first event of Spring happens next week. Pitchers and catchers will report to all MLB teams by the end of next week and the following week exhibition games begin.

Some people in northern climes look for the arrival of the Robin as the first sign of Spring but not me. Play Ball!

This Picture Makes Me Sneeze

The other day while photographing pansies in our garden, I began to sneeze. Nothing unusual, I have been an allergy sufferer for my whole life. Satisfied I got a good exposure I uploaded the image to my computer and at first I though I must have a dirty sensor or need to clean the back element of my lens. Upon closer examination, I realized there was nothing wrong. Those little yellow spots on on the beautiful red petals are actually little globs of pollen and not an image defect.

Droplets

Pansies are beautiful short lived spring flowers. If you treat them right, they may also bloom again in the fall. I love the vibrance of the colors. I also like the way the water droplets are captured by the petals and how they seem to sometimes to be glued there for hours. You can buy a print of this one and see others at my commercial gallery.
