Happy Birthday!!!

I had the privledge to meet to adorable young men that LOVE to play ball. It was OPENING DAY for the Elmira Heights Little League, and the first game of the season. Needless to say, butterflies were in tummies, but after the first pitch, it was just a FUN game. Great job gentlemen!!!

Here are just a few of my favorites. (of course my favorites always end up being BWs)  And today is their BIRTHDAY!!  Happy Birthday!!!

MORE of their GAME PHOTOS and the ELMIRA HEIGHTS Little League can be viewed HERE.








OPENING DAY!!

Good luck to all of our little ladies venturing off to bigger adventures. It was a FUN day down at the fields. Food, games, raffles, HUGE obstacle courses, picture day, and cake.  Just some of the action and "life is a pitch" shots that took place that day.

Sliding Clinic - Lens Testing.

At the sliding clinic this weekend, I test out the Tamaron  SP 150-600MM F/5-6.3 Di VC USD with my 5DMarkIII.  Overall I'm impressed with this lens.  For the money, its a nice lens to have in the bag.  After the 400mm reach, I am seeing softness, but nothing that should be thrown out.  Here are some action photos from the 8U - 16U girls sliding clinic, just to test the auto focus.  A wee slower than my Canon monster lens, but I was also using my 5D which isn't really built for sports, but I've managed to use it for the last 2 years.  Poor thing.  It does want to retire to portraits, just waiting for my budget to increase...  anyway, enjoy the photos.  Don't they look good sliding???!!!!

Thanks to Coach Dave Cook for organizing the clinic again this year for the girls.



Good Luck this season girls!!!
