Let’s begin again, begin the begin

Whoops.  Been a while since I checked in here, hasn’t it?  I had the best of intentions for regular updates, but some family health issues derailed me from posting… but not from shooting!

The website itself is close to up to date as far as shots I’ve edited, though individual dates aren’t completed (i.e. when I personally am granted nine-day weeks, while the rest of you keep getting seven, I will catch up). There’s a What’s New page to collect the photos where I’m not ready for full pages yet!

In the meantime, let me try to get back in the groove with a two-month summary of sorts!

Made the trip to Citi Field in New York to see the Mets host the Sox. Unfortunately Citi’s camera policies as stated (if perhaps not as practiced, as it turns out) were very restrictive, so I had to make do with Son of Babycam, my little Lumix.


Pedroia apparently trash-talked his way around the bases, to the amusement of Jose Reyes.

April 7 brought our long-awaited Opening Day!


Johnny Pesky made an elegant Opening Day entrance…


… Dustin Pedroia, maybe a little less so.


But some old lions made an entrance of their own!

Had my first emergency ticket purchase for April 17, when Hunter Jones got the call to the big leagues. Got some nice shots that night, even if Hunter never left the bullpen.


(he did get to stand in the outfield!)


And here I go with the opposition again: Brian Roberts…


… and Luke Scott.


Dustin Pedroia levitates. (Watch Dustin on base–he bounces on his lead. Side-side-side-UP!)


Brad Penny ponders.


Nick Green smolders. (He’d earned it–he’d just tied the game.)

Next came a trip to Pawtucket on April 18.


Clay Buchholz.


Fernando Cabrera. (If you need to pick out Cabrera, look for the tall, alarmingly handsome righty who looks like a movie heartthrob preparing to play a minor league pitcher.)

Back to Fenway on April 20!


Justin Masterson nearly took out Ryan Freel with a pickoff throw.


Chris Carter keeps his eye on the ball.


And I got to be there for Hunter’s debut after all!

I’ll continue the tale tomorrow!
